the author needs a reality adjustment. shes ashamed to be a decendant because the cherokee require that you have a ancestor on the government rolls listing tribal members? we sovereign tribes have the undeniable right to decide the enrollment criteria of our respective tribes, not just the cherokee, all tribes! the author should also brush up on modern politics, perhaps she should look into the congressional Black Caucus who mandate you must be "black" to be a member, meanwhile white congressmen in predominatly black districts are turned down for membership, wait isnt that race descrimination?
