    I have grown up in a family where i was told that my paternal grandmother was a medicine women and that she was a Whichita indian. I was told that she had taken on the last name of Whitcha (not sure if I am spelling the last name right). How can I find out if I am Native American. I have always been facinated with the culture, dance, and music. I would love to know more about my heritage.
    Thank you Marchanna

  2. My father is 92 years old and I have been told he has Indian and that his Great, Great , Great Grandfather was a Chief of what Tribe I do not know? My Fathers name is Guy Walter Dudley from the Dudley Family most live in Pennsylvania. I am assuming the tribe was from Massachusetts’s ?? I know I am part Indian and I am so proud but I do not know what tribe and really would love to be able to tell my Dad what tribe we belong too??? Can anybody help me to find out?? Greatly appreciated… 🙂

    • Hello Cynthia, I just wanted to share some information on how you could probably find out what tribe. I just did my DNA thru Accu-Metrics Viaguard, they do Native-First Nations DNA and they can match your DNA with a specific Tribe that you belong to by comparing your DNA with known tribal members. I paid $125.00, I hope that’s helpful. 🙂

      • Hi my name is Terry ..i was trying to figure stuff out..I would like to try this…I was told i was Indian ..we have My mothers cousin use to run the Indian stuff out here in Lowell Mass..he is like 94 now so he dont..I did my DNA threw Ancestry but nothing showed up….I wanted to try this…His father and my grandfather lived on an Indian Reservation in Canada..Now im told it was all a lie..not sure whats up…

        • Well, just to let you know, there are more tribes in Massachusetts than just the Wampanoag. The Massachuset tribe, of whom the state of Massachusetts was named after are still alive and well. There is the Ponkapoag, the Natick, as well as other tribes that they don’t mention. I’m Ponkapoag myself as well as Wampanoag, and proud to be both. Do a lot of research. Look for tribes other than Wampanoag.
