    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. 🙂

    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!

    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?

    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. 🙂
