Indians come in all races, even White. Race never mattered to us. We adopted - even kidnapped - Whites, Mexicans, Blacks, everyone and intermarried with them. That being said, today, Whites who have ZERO Indian culture care about DNA testing. The rest of don't care because we know who our families are and we know who our tribal members are. It is only when you try to desperately find that last drop of Indian blood in your genealogy that DNA testing becomes important. The bottomline: if you need to resort to the highly-suspect science of DNA testing, you are NOT Indian. If you are Indian, it should already be in your culture. And oh the Cherokees stopped being Indian several generations ago, so the Black Freedmen issue is a non-issue. The Cherokees are no longer Indian. Sounds harsh but it's the truth.
