You're right Coconut Queen actually i've never met any Blacks of America who didn't have Native bloodlines, that's why I'm very suprised it must be proven now. In other countries Blacks in those countries dont have to proove that they are natives there cause they have records of birth and deaths of thier ancestors. I would think that should be enough proof especially if the records date back in the 1800's that should be automatic Nativity since there were such a mix of races. Many Black Native Americans have been made fun of when they mention they have indegieous bloodlines. It makes it seem as if they dont want to be black but that's not it, many dont know how to represent themselves, they just want to be Native and to finally be accepted as a Native not a Foreinger.
