I have never liked this question much either, but its obvious the question interests others. I have often toyed with the idea of changing the title, but no one up until now has seemed to mind.

Its not the question so much, I am always proud to say I am Abenaki, but to use the word bloodline reminds me of of dog and horse breeding. So, maybe I am more sensitive than others...I can deal with that...

My niece's greatgrandmother was 1/2 Cherokee.
And my husband is 100% Mexican, which is Indian. I would love to know if he is MAYAN or AZTEC.
What would be the best way to research this?

I would start with google. I'm not sure, I've not done a lot of genealogy or history tracing on my mom's side. My Dad's father and mother are from Ireland, and the records are very easy. A lot of microfiche at the library.

Ok, I have to say something about Mexicans being native. Mexico was conquered by Spain. The whole continent from Alaska to the tip of Chile was and is populated by natives. Some Spaniards "mixed" with Natives. There is a reason that Mexicans are so much darker than Spaniards - They are native. Many native north american languages are called uto-aztecan because - like Spanish derives from Latin - so Shoshone, Comanche, etc. derive from the Aztec language family. There so so many tribes in Mexico that are not Aztecas or Maya. Yaqui and Apache have villages south of the border of Mexico. There are Concha, Huichol, Tarahumara, the US Mexico border splits the Kumaayay nation in two! Sorry to be so long winded, but this is something I feel strongly about. Next time you look at a Mexican, think about the native in them.

Thanks Valentina-I thought I had seriously slipped up there,because I knew Mexicans were Indian.
I have three Indian penpals;
One is Mayan(Quiche)/Apache
Another is 3/4 Tohono O'odham(another of the Uto-Aztecan language family-as is Hopi))/ 1/4 Mexican and the last is also Apache/Mexican..I'd love anyone to try and tell them, that they weren't full-blooded natives!!
My Mayan pal told me that as far down as Panama was of North America at one time too,before they split up all the territories.He always spells America with a 'k', and instead of speaking standard spanish, he speaks castillian a different form of the language.

When I saw Puyallup on your post, it caught my eye. My ex-husband and I were stationed at FT Lewis. Both of my children were born at Madigan. My ex and I went to The Puyallup Tribe Bingo Palace at least once a week for about 2 years. It is absolutely beautiful out there.
As I said before I am Blackfoot, Cree on my Mom's side and My dad is 1st generation Irish-American.

Thanks to those who responded with the clarifications. I did think I was correct in saying Mexicans ARE Indian. For a minute there I thought someone was trying to make me feel dumb.
I am sorry I caused some confusion. Guess I better stay out of this forum. It doesn't seem like I fit in too well. I was just interested in learning more about my husbands ancestors.

OK, the government is winning here. Divide and conquer, that's how they have always dealt with the native peoples. They do it with the blood quantum thingy, the federally recognized tribes vs. those who have been terminated (of which I am one, so yeah, I don't exist, neither does anyone in my family or anywhere on the east coast with the exception of the arrrrgh!!! this really gets my blood boiling!!!

Mexicans, all of who are related to the Aztec, Mayan, Yanomami, Perepecha, Tarascan, Huichal, Uwa and many many other indigenous tribes of south america( http://gosouthamerica.about.com/od/i...th_America.htm )
are just as much Indian or Native American as are those from North America.

One of our own Ojibwe sisters was assinated while definding the rights of our south american brothers and sisters...

"Ingrid Washinawatok and two Hawaiian activists, Lahe’ena’e Gay and Terence Freitas, were asked by the U'wa People of Arauca Province, Colombia, to help set up a school to protect their culture and language, and to help them to defend their lands against oil exploration by Occidental Petroleum. On February 25, 1999, while traveling with the U’was, the three activists were kidnapped by guerrillas of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC). A week later Washinawatok and her colleagues were found murdered, their bodies dumped across the river in Venezuela."

Oh and Puerto Ricans are native to, from the Taino Nation, the people that first dealt with Christopher columbus...

open your minds, people!!!

Kimgapeach, I apologise and am truly sorry you felt offended. EVERYONE is welcome here and you surely may ask questions...How else does one learn?

My father's Mother was, we thought, 1/2 Kalapua, Tualitan Valley, Oregon her Mother. Her father Scot/French Canadian.

So many tribal people were moved around by the government, nations combined, or movied for the possibility of a better life, that it sometimes takes a lot of research to get to the bottom of things...You are one of the fortunate ones that were able to discover their true tribal identity. Congratualtions!!!

Yes, you are right. When I was younger and trying to find this information all I could find was old books that said the the Kalapuya Tribes were wiped out in the 1800's by small pox.

Since then we have discovered that they were not wiped out but moved to the Grand Rond Reservation. We were able to attend a Pow Wow there several years ago.

Now, more information from my Aunt and cousin, due to their years of research, that the connection is actually to the Chinook tribe. Their research continues.

Thank you,
Zan
