In my 75 years traveling
around Mother Earth
to native gathering
in New York, New England, Pennsylvania,
New Jersey, Delaware and parts of Northeast Canada.
There was no problem
believing that the people
we met were in fact,
No DNA test
of blood percentage
By the way,
did you know that,
Half-Breed is an English word
Mixed-Breed is a United States of America word,
If you use them,
Guess What You Are?
both are now used in movies
as a way to eliminate
our people from Mother Earth!
Sometime around the middle 1980’s!”
Non-native politicians stepped in,
to change the laws and
resolve our ‘land claims’ again.
In other words,
to abolish our land claims.
One might tend to guess, that the speed of the internet
had a little to do with it?
I tend to believe that the
“Government Controlled Indian Appointment to a Casino Indian Reservations,”
was the reason!
(Indians)? From way across the Mississippi River
started showing up at our gathering
pushing what did not work, with their elders,
at these Eastern Gatherings.
Not my grandfathers gatherings!
“Never allowed at mine, my fathers, or my grandfathers gatherings”!!!!!
((( NEVER ! )))
Well, now that most of the elders
they seem to be back like
the greedy vultures
that they are!
Now on the this article
A DNA test can’t tell us if Elizabeth Warren
has Native American roots
To which my response was:
Would a DNA test actually answer that question?
Nanibaa’ Garrison is a bioethicist and assistant professor of pediatrics at Seattle Children’s Hospital. A Native American, she earned a PhD in the Department of Genetics at Stanford, with a dissertation focused on ancestry. In a phone call Tuesday afternoon, she explained why Brown’s suggestion — and the Republican National Committee insisted on Tuesday that it was only that, a suggestion — wouldn’t do any good.
“It’s really difficult to say that a DNA test would be able to identify how much Native American ancestry a person has,” Garrison said.
That’s because determinations of ancestry are based on “ancestry-informative markers” — genetic flags that offer probabilities of the likelihood of certain ancestries. Most of those markers, AIMs, are “based on global populations that are outside of the U.S.,” she said, “primarily people of European descent, people of Asian descent and people of African descent.
So, should a Warren apologize to Native Americans?
