I have always been told there was Cherokee blood in our family. How do I find out?


My grandmother told me that I have Cherokee blood but when asked questions she would never talk about it. Most of my life I’ve wanted to know what and if it was true and how much. I am always told by people that they can see the indian in me. I know it but want to know for sure. How can I find this information without exhausting myself. I am 69 years young and in search for my true blood line. Thanks for all your help.


Growing up my Grandmother stated several times of our families past as Cherokee. When questioned further about it, she became angry and stated “we will speak of it no more”
So, as I believe my “Elder” much more than the politics of the “Rez”, I accept that per family stories that I am at least in part Cherokee. I do not need a piece of paper telling me what I may or may not be.

I was adopted through Catholic Charities in 1966 in St. Louis, Mo. All I know is that my biological parents passed to is my Greek, Irish, and American ancestry links. How would I determine what Native American Tribe (and what percentage) I have. Thanks in advance.

I am a 70 yo full time college student at Meramec Community College, St L., MO. What I would like to do is see a Native Peoples presence on campus so I am forming a Native Peoples Club. I feel it is something that’s been long needed in this area and I know a couple of history professors agree with me but we’re not sure how to go about getting help from local Native People. I am looking for wise council from anyone who might be able to assist us.

I was just wondering how I go about finding out how much native american I am. Both sides of my family is registered but the information is hard for me to get my hands on. How would I go about finding the information myself. I really appreciate your time and information you can give me. Thanks so much.
