    hey Tom, I've seen you several times on this forum,I get on it every time I can.I have traced my family name(Collins)to the Saponi tribe. I called the Saponi Nation in Missouri and asked them about membership. They said they recognized a lot of my names,but they said my family isnt associated with the western saponi,they would be with the eastern branches of saponi. I have tried desperately to get ahold of the Haliwa Saponi and had no success. I was told I can claim NA heritage even if I cant become a member of a tribe.My next question is this(and forgive me for my lack of knowledge),but are people allowed to participate in powwows if they aren't a member of a tribe,or do you have to "prove" NA heritage with a CDIB card before participating?Is there individuals out there in my situation,(that know they are NA but are not a member of a tribe),that dance in powwows?Any info on this would be greatly appreciated,and I hope to hear more from you on this great forum!Thanks for your time,Gary
