I just found out that Jimi Hendrix was inducted into the Native American Music Hall of Fame. I think it is great that even after all the years past since his death that he is still getting recognition for his great music.

I didn't know Jimi Hendrix was NDN.

Lots of famous Indians. It's rare to see a famous black/NDN. Very rare. I think Tupac Shakur was. (The name Tupac, if nothing else, is of South American origin. [Tupac Ypanki])

There's a lot of historical connections. I don't know everything.

Tupac was not of Indian descent. There's actually some website about every and any actor/performer that claimed they were Indian like Tina Turner, Heather Locklear and Burt Reynolds. If I find it i'll post it...

I didn't think Heather Locklear acknowledged being Indian, I know she is supposed to be Lumbee or something, I think I heard somewhere that a group that honors Natives in the arts wanted to give her an award but she wasn't around to recieve it, I may be wrong but it didn't seem like she wanted anything to do with being Lumbee.

Oh she's Lumbee allright, she just isn't advertising it. The name Locklear is an old Lumbee name and her family is Southern. Someone just put the pieces together. She's doing the same thing the actress from Flashdance did, not acknowledgeing her "colored" side. From the Lumbee's i've talked to, she's only Lumbee in name alone, and that it is pretty much it.

Hello All, Long time no post been very busy with school.

I didnt know Jimi Hendrix was Indian either until I heard something about it on T.V. a while back. I believe they said that he was half or part Cherokee. I am not completely sure though.

I don't know about the website, but I would bet money that Tupac Shakur was of African and Indian descent. He definetly had Black Indian facial features, and he had a look like the male members of my family. One way that I've always been able to identify Black Indians is by the eyes, and Tupac had those eyes. Alot of people think that Black Indians are supposed to be light in complexion and look like Pocohantes or somebody, but many are dark in complexion. Of course I'm not 100% sure, but Tupac definetly looked like a person of Indian descent.

It's funny that you would notice this because I've always thought the exact same thing. It reminds me of a time when my sister walked into a furniture store and a Black Indian brother who worked there told his white co-worker "She has Indian blood in her". And the man's co-worker asked him "How do you know?" And the brother told him "I know my people". I think all of us as Black Indians know what the brother was talking about. But as far as Tupac, I'm not 100% sure but I do believe that there's something to it.

Yes, I just recently found out about the Lumbees and the Melungeons and Locklear is, indeed, an old Lumbee name. Biography, the TV program on A&E did a program about her and I watched, hoping that some mention of would be made However, as you already know, none was made.

If I had a backgroond like that, I'd be happy about it and find out all I could.
