I think you meant the word, "pale". "White" denotes a race or socio-ethnicity. Which considering you "encountered" these people, and don't know who they really ARE, leaping to conclusions based on their skin tone instead of their family and tribal connections, I guess you really don't know enough to guess they are "White" and not just simply "pale" due to mixed heritage. When people in the Indigenous community give in to the Feds games of pitting us against each other so we never have a true power base in this country, it sure makes getting things done to secure our sovereign rights a lot harder when we play games of looking down on each other for being too dark or too pale to be "Indian". You make comments about not giving genetic materials in case the Feds get them, but then you play right into their games with your little comment.
