When I turned 50 years old, I was told that I was 1/2 Cheyenne and 1/2 Irish. I was adopted in Indiana when I was 5 years old. The state in order to get around the law and adopt me to a white couple, destroyed my birth records and did a delayed birth certificate, changing my race to “blank,’ and changed my middle name (Lonewolf,) to “L”, They then made my adopted parents my actual parents for the birth certificate, as by law no one of mixed race could be adopted by a white family. I tried to get help from the Cheyenne Nation, back, when I was 50 to get a membership card, but no one would help me, except for the Department of the Interior, who told me to contact the Cheyenne. I am now 70 years old. I know who I am, my quarter Pottawatomie wife, knows who I am, and our family, know who I am. The Great Grandfather of All, also knows who I am, so I am satisfied. I don’t need a card to tell me who I am.

Anyway, the purpose of this email is to find out who I can get to bless our new, 1st owned by us alone, propery, sence our marage of 48 years ago. We are starting to move our stuff to it, but want it blessed by a medicine man, preferently Cheyenne, but any tribe will do, since we are all children of the Grandfather. Can anyone help us? Thanks Bobby Lonewolf Gentry and Linda Lady Wolf Gentry

I’ve have interest on land in NE. And I have two siblings that deceased for more than 10 years. How do I go about getting that in my name. And who do I send it to. My brother Tonto was getting funds from Winnebago tribe and Omaha tribe. And my brother was buried in tribal land and I dont know where is his burial was at. I didn’t have any money to go to my brothers funeral. And no one seems to know.Could you please help me. I would like to pass this on to my kids so we can keep in the family. My brothers legal was Eugene Wainwright or Philips

My Grandmother was born in Columbus Nebraska. I believe she was of Native American ancestey. Her name was Leouse Kuntzleman born Nov. 6, 1899. She may have been adopted or born to William Kuntzelman with a Native American mother. I can find no records of her heritage and know that it was kept a secret from her family. My Father did tell my Mother that he is Native Aerican but she was to keep it a secret. I want to honor both my Grandmother’s and my Father’s heritage but keep running into dead ends. Can you help me?


I have been searching records and have found a male born in 1866. His nation is Shoshone. He has the same name as my great great grandfather John Witchie in the census. Native name being Joh nee. My ancestor also had a daughter around that time and then 2 yrs. later another daughter. How common was it for the name to be the same as the Father’s English name? Am I onto something here?
