Red face New to everything *shy*

I don't even know where to begin, and i'm really not wanting to offend anyone, just shy about it all. I'm in a MWI relationship with an enrolled member of the Kalispel Tribe. If you have not already guess i'm white, very glow in the dark pale white. I've trying to look for information about the Kalispel tribe, but mostly what i find is about the casino, maybe i'm just not googling the right thing. I don't know how acceptable mixed relationships are. I'm really not trying to sound stupid, and forgive my english, i did not start speaking english until i was 22..I know due to him being locked up, it's going to be a little hard for him and us once he gets out, but i'm good with that, i just don't like how the tribe will feel about him dating a white girl...really i don't mean to sound so stupid, i just really don't understand much about Native American culture, but i'm trying to learn.
Thank you
Pixie

Hello, so as a lot of people are of mixed blood anymore, it is not that uncommon.... Of course you will run into some who will have issues, but keep your head up and don't let it get to you.
Does your man dance or did he used to? Is he traditional? Does he do Native artwork, beadwork, or putting together regalias? Breast plates, or roaches?
I just googled and found website for the tribe, they have a annual pow wow which is a big gathering of Natives with dancing, food, and maybe games.
If u like you can pm me. I only have random access to internet lately so may be a day or so before I reply...
And does he have a sweat lodge in his facility?

Hi welcome, I am white (British) and my partner is Native American. We have been together a long time and to be honest we have more grief off people because he is incarcerated not because we are mixed race. There will always be people who have an issue and that is their business. Who is to say who should be with who? , as long as you love each other and are strong and happy in your relationship it shouldn't matter what others think.
feel free to message me if you have any questions.

Hi, can ask is your man in federal or state prison as my man is in federal and he has never had the opportunity of a pow wow, I know he would really enjoy that.
Have a good evening

I'm with ya on the glow in the dark white thing I am too and I married a native American man and am now currently dating one and his family was completely supportive and we haven't had anybody act differently towards me and they excepted me with open arms. I think it really just depends on his family and how they view it.

As of late i'm not even sure if he wants me to meet his family...but with the holidays we all know how that time of year can be.
