What makes someone an Indian? Is it blood quantum? Is it going to pow-wows? How many of you telling this guy he ain't a real Indian go to ceremony or speak your languages? How many of you fight to make things better for your people or listen to what your elders teach? No, you must not, because Indians didn't decide who was Indian based on blood quantum, we didn't make it impossible to adopt, we recognized that Indianness is cultural and ethnic, not racial. The idea of Indians as a race was invented to destroy us and it's sad to see so many of us embrace it.
