I think if one has no other association with being Native than DNA, that is pretty sad. It could be said that there are hundreds of thousands, possibly millions of americans who have "Native American" DNA who neither know it or care. But so what? Besides giving indicators of known health issues, it shouldn't be any sort of basis for identity. For whom else is this the case? Or why should it be acceptable for Native people today that one can put on feathers and DNA and be someone else? It's new age nonsense.
