<<I am assuming the reference to Anasazi means Navajo and Cherokee blood>>
I don't mean to belabor this particular point, but your assumption would be wholly inaccurate. First of all, the people who are referred to as "Anasazi" have absolutely NOTHING to do with the Cherokee people. The Anasazi were a People of the Southwest area - their abandoned communities are found in New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, and Utah. This was NEVER Cherokee territory, the Cherokee lived in the Southeastern area of this country, East of the Mississippi River.
They (the Cherokee) were forcibly moved to Oklahoma in the 1800's (read about the Trail of Tears), but their traditional territory was in the East. There is absolutely NO relationship - culturally, linguistically, genetically, historically - between the Cherokee and the "Anasazi".
Second, as I said before, it is the PUEBLO Peoples who consider the "Anasazi" to be their ancestors. The Dineh (Navajo) are NOT Pueblo people, they are a completely distinct and separate cultural group, part of the Athapaskan linguistic group; as are the Apache and the Denaa People of interior Alaska and parts of Canada.
The Pueblo Peoples include the over a dozen individual pueblo communities in the Southwest.
This is no disparagement of your psychic friend, just simple facts for your information.
