Brenda’s site is wonderful, I love it! Keep it up Brenda!
This is a very strong topic for a long time even now I get somewhat offended when people concieve me as black. I used to complain all the time when I filled out forms that there was no reference to other that you could mark for race they would have black, white, hispanic, even non-hispanic but that was it.
I have always referred to myself as tri-racial black white and indian no specific order though. I am what I am it just sad that I know nothing about the white part of my history. But I find it hard being accepted on either side. Funny Huh? I mean blacks look at me as white because of my long hair and grain of hair light complexion, but I think it is mostly out of jealousy though. Then whites assume I am black becausde I am not white enough, no blonde hair and blue eyes, this is my perception so I say where is the love?
But as long as I know, that is all that matters but I see the racism in very settle ways all the time. It is so unfortunate though. Well honestly I feel most accepted as Indian so that is what I prefer to use not ignoring the other parts at all. But we as “Indians” know the hardships we have and continue to go through, so I guess there is a mutual understanding and this is where I feel most welcome. 🙂
I am glad that you decided to do this for me. I am elighted and I want to say thanks, from the bottom of my heart. As far as that family issue is concerned, I truly meant no harm but who am I to say. Thanks, love you Felicia.
Just know that I have the best intentions for our family.

You have to be kidding me! I am so irritated by this it’s hard enough trying to put the pieces together yourself. But when you have someone deliberately destroying them it’s just not right!
I purchased the book and it is wonderful to have a piece of my family history in my hands. I wish though I could hear the words being said before I ruin the pronunciation myself. But I recommend the book its a great starter!
Is there any contact information for Wood? I would like to find out more about what she is doing and how I can take part and learn myself.
I am very interested maybe I can find away to use it in my wedding.
Exactly where is this located I did not know one even existed.
Okay maybe it’s just me but they look like two Indians not wearing traditional dress. The clothes dont fit them to me, are you sure this is traditional dress and they are not wearing caucasians clothing?
Linda you are heaven sent! I would love to get with you and learn, I am ordering the book today. I will let you know when I have it.
No I am sorry but I dont know any smiths.
Yes Blanche Cannon which is my late grandmother her maiden name is Jones. My late greatgrandmother Daisy Cannon’s maiden name is George her father’s name is Allen George and mother’s name is Mary Liza Boyd but I am not sure about the spelling of Mary’s name. I truly feel like a void is being filled and a weight is being lifted slowly. 🙂
