My great grandfather was Aaron Starr born 1861 his mother was Loretta M Conklin from the Ramapough tribe. My great grandmother was Isabella Conklin born 1871 in Pine Meadow ,New York also belonging to the Ramapough tribe. But I have been unable to find documentation stating so


My Great Grandmother was born Susie Sunbeam Starr in Virginia in 1892 and died in Trenton New Jersey in 1994. I know she was Native American but don’t know what tribe at all.


Thank you

Liz I am Taino boriken also family originating from family Rodriguez from Aibonito and later Guayama cacique of orocobix tribe, to answer your question we are still not recognized due to the issue of statehood unresolved to date and although our people voted for statehood we were denied so I’m sorry to say there is definitely more work to be done and due to the recent devastation caused by the latest hurricane we may have to wait even longer. I choose to commence in my language and culture studies and continue the search for others that stand with the cause. Investing my time with possibilities of finding activities involving other Tainos of the Caribbean or even our closest relatives who from what I can tell are lokono speaking Arawak tribes and later on intergrated Navajo Nation


I did not find my Tribe on your list. They still exist. I just cannot find an address for them. Puerto Rico is a commonwealth of America. I am a descendent of the Taíno Tribe. My grandmother, who died when my mother was a mere 10 years old was Taíno. My mom was raised by her father whom did not follow a Taíno lifestyle, neither did their other family after my grandmother passed away. No one in either side of the family will give me any information regarding our Tribe and who is still in the Tribe. How can I find information on my family Tribe without info from my family. I’m on my own on this one. My mother is 80 years old now and has dementia, so she cannot remember specifics from her deceased mother and father. She cannot remember their dates of birth nor death. So I’m really at a standstill. I have been trying with ancestry.com since 2016, and still at zero info. I get hints, but the hints do not apply to my family’s Tribe. I took the ancestry.com DNA test last week and mailed it. I don’t know how quick or slow they work to get DNA results to their clients. In the meantime, can anyone give me any tips, advice, anything on how to proceed and where to go being that I do not have the support of my family? Anything will be appreciated. Also, since I’m one to think of every possible scenario on earth, if by any chance the Tribe folded and theirs no one left in the family who is an active Tribe member, being that I’m a direct descendant of my grandmother, would I be able to claim my family’s Tribe and continue where the last family member took off? Would I be able to re-establish my family’s Tribe again if that were the case? If so, how? How does one direct descendent re-establish a debunked Tribe? What’s the process and how do I go about re-establishing our Tribe? Again, I think of every scenario. I’d like to think that they do still exist as my older sister suspects from overhearing other family members conversations. They won’t give us info, but my sister on occasion has overheard conversations, just not enough to give me something to go one. I hope someone here can help me. Thank you for your time. God bless you all.

What nation would the Wiccopee tribe be part of?


Hi. I am 1/4 Mohawk Native American. I have been trying to trace back my heritage. I was only able to get some information from the Canada Mohawk Tribe. Otherwise, they said that the churches were burned down and they can’t get anymore info. Can you help? Thank you, Alice


I am 1/4 Mohawk Native American Indian. I have been through some past records, some in Canada and told the churches, where the proof is, have been burned down. Is there any other way to continue my search? Thank you.


Hi just found out that my grandmother is a hundred percent Tuscarora Indian I’m trying to join or enrolled and the tribe how do I go about doing that


Thanks Paul but I have done that I have the census roll and everything with my dates and then I’m just trying to figure out how to go about to enroll
