my great grandmother, a full blood Abenaki woman from Quebec was moved to Boston when she married a white man...His family did not want the neighbors to know so they were set up in Boston...My great grandmom's family followed them to Boston when they heard of the work available in the city

If old Sequoiah hadn't been messing in that white man's type box I might be, but an A will still sound like "Ah", a W will be a "wa", etc. Too damn old to try and learn it all at once.

I know what you mean, been there...I have been struggling for years...am getting to the point where i can understand a lot, just thru word recognition...but speaking my ancestors language is well, i am not going to say impossible...but there are lot of days i dont ever think i will get inflections or emphasis and pronunciations right...I know though, when i try i can really make some BIG mistakes

I am a African American woman. My great grandfather (on mother's side) was an Indian who married African American woman.

Cherokee.

I want to say that I feel very drawn to the spirit these days, because My Chai is a Hmong shaman. Although he's Hmong...some of the things are so similar from what I learned from my mom, aunt, and grandma. I'm dreaming and experiencing things I never, ever dreamed were possible to be connected with him....and we are more connected every day! What a huge blessing!

I'm adopted and although my records state Native American from both sides it's tribe unknown-- by looking at me and the fact I'm from Ok. I'd say most likely Cherokee as my features are right on for that tribe.
My man is Cherokee- wolf clan-- and is fairly fluent in the language. He got home a month ago and is trying to teach it to me-- I speak Italian and bits of a few other languages but man--- Cherokee is kicking my behind--
It's so different from latin based- or romance languages that I'm used to.
He just gave me a tatt on my ring finger in Cherokee that says 'I love you' and I've pretty much got saying it correctly down-- but he's a task master if I don't get it 100% correct I have to try again-- but hey it's the best way to learn.
In fact he refused to even give it to me until I could say it perfectly and that took me a week or two to get it down-- like I said I'm good with foreign languages but this is a whole different ballgame--
I'm really interested in it and will continue to work on it-- I can't wait until I can read it and speak it well enough that no one laughs at me!!!!

Red face Cherokee here

Hi, my have four generations of cherokee decent, I am very connected to my animal spirit (wolf). So many people decriminate against us as native americans, but that is only part of who I am. I also have alot of European decent on the other side of the line.

Love and peace to all...

Hey girl!! Your right a lot of people do discriminate against Native Americans and in all reality we are the real minority. They came, took our land and ran us out. But its okay girl, because little by little we are getting it back and so are all of our ancestors..

God Bless

i'm a quarter Cherokee and ashamed to say know very little about my family history, although i've been drawn to it my whole life. I would like to know more about my family history but my father and his family did not get along and when he was alive and i asked questions he'd rarely answere. He did tell me once we were in a line with a lot of shamans and that i had the ability. I would LOVE to finly find out about my heritage. Can anyone tell me where to go and who to talk to to find out about my family? My grandmothers maided name was Erie Strickland, does anyone know anything about the Strickland's? Id really like to find out.
