Hello! I'd love to try and get my CDIB card from the Cherokee Nation. My dentist "proved" my heritage by my double-rooted teeth and my family by oral tradition. So help would be great!

My name is Helena. I am 56 years old. My husband name is John. I have four adult children two boys two girls and 6 grandchildren. We have one dog. My favorite snack food is fruit. My favorite exercise is walking or riding my bike. My hobby is working in my garden. My father's dad was Cherokee. Unfortunately he died when my father was a little boy so he didn't remember anything about him except that he was Cherokee.

1. FIRST NAME? Paula
2. CITY IN WHICH YOU LIVE? San Francisco bay area is my stomping grounds...
3. WHEN IS YOUR BIRTHDAY? I am 31, I try to keep the date off major online postings because I am a Computer Science major and I think about data grabbing. Dont want to make it any easier.
4. SIGNIFICANT OTHER? Im separated, heading to divorce
5. CHILDREN? GRANDCHILDREN? yes, 1 son
6. PETS? not right now, too busy, it would not be fair to them :(
7. FAVORITE SNACK FOOD? carrots -lol by force- the old favorites like chips are not allowed in the house as a real snack anymore!
8. FAVORITE EXERCISE? walking -too much pain to run now
9. HOBBY? writing/performing songs and albums, computer programming and web development
10.ANYTHING ELSE?
I have heard about my Cherokee grandmother, but according to documentation she does not exist, she never had a birth certificate. But, because I know that she exists I still remember that I am part Cherokee, and I figure why not join the team. I sometimes think stuff like "who will remember me as later generations go by" and one time it got me thinking about my Cherokee ancestors. It is a really cool thought though, to think that there were these people before me living these lives, though I did not get to meet them. Thus, I claim Cherokee, and it is all good.

Hi there, by way of introduction I am from the UK and live with my wonderful husband and a cute little dog and cat. My birthday is July 28, so Im a Leo but dont let that put you off as Im more the easy-going pussycat. Although I am not a Native American by birth I read much about your culture, have a strange affinity with wolves, love the flute, drumming and chanting and very often dream that I live and hunt somewhere up near Montana and am always accompanied by a wolf, which I really cant explain as Ive only ever been to Florida to visit my sister who lives there. I hope you dont mind my joining this group where I hope to meet some of you soon and learn from you.

10.ANYTHING ELSE? I have Cherokee from both grandparents on my moms side and Navajo also from one of my grandparents on my moms side. I have Cherokee and I believe Blackfoot from one of my dads parents and some Irish from one of his parents. I have always wondered why I have to check White on any applications I fill out. I have more Indian in me than anything. So I just don't understand it. I am proud to be of Indian descent. Maybe it's because I never lived on a Reservation and don't speak the language not sure, but I'm not ashamed of my blood. Growing up people always made fun of me calling me little Indian Squall and telling me to go back to my Reservation. Not sure but I was told my Indian name should be either Running Horse or Brave Horse.

Greetings,

HERE ARE THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT ME.


1. FIRST NAME? adopted name, Patricia. Name given to me by my biological mother, Vicky Lynn.
2. CITY IN WHICH YOU LIVE? Seattle area.
3. WHEN IS YOUR BIRTHDAY? July 28th
4. SIGNIFICANT OTHER? Yes--32 years
5. CHILDREN? 2 Daughters. GRANDCHILDREN? 1
6. PETS? I have one spiteful cat.
7. FAVORITE SNACK FOOD? Pizza
8. FAVORITE EXERCISE? Walking, Swimming, Yoga
9. HOBBY? I am an artist--I always have something going. Current project is a floor to ceiling family tree.
10.ANYTHING ELSE? I am a writer. I am in my last weeks of grad school. My manuscript is a hybrid of fiction, poetry and non-fiction. Second project is already underway.
I am an adopted woman. I only recently discovered my Native American ancestry. I am in the process of learning how to "wear" my heritage-it's all very new. My roots are steeped in Cherokee. I also have a vein of Shawnee and Catawba. I do have English and German ancestry, but apparently my ancestors got off the ship and married into Native American tribes/families. This mixing continued all the way through to my biological parents. It's exciting, shocking, and overwhelming.

I'll use any excuse to eat and celebrate--so here I am.

Hey All.
My name is Sandy, and I live in the small town of Atoka, which is in Tennessee.My birthday is May 21st. My significant other is my best friend Mike the love of my life. I have 2 of the most wonderful boys. ( of course what mother wouldn't brag on her kids.) No grand kids yet. Been blessed enough to own horses most of my life, right now I have 2. A quaterhorse name Cowboy, and a Welsh pony, who thinks he is bigger than the rest of the horses. His name is Houdini. I also board 2 other horses for people. Although I give these horses full care & charge their people nothing. I get the satisfaction of knowing these horses love me alot. I'm sorry I do ramble on..... I also love dogs.. We have one Golden retreiver mutt mix. His name is Turbo. I would have alot more if I was allowed.
My favorite snack food right now is Blackberries and peanut butter. Of course I use my horse for most of my exercise. ( cleaning stalls is hard work ) But I also like to walk, when the weather permits. I feel like I go on & on, but Horses are my favorite hobby, then come photography & gardening. I joined this group because I do have a Cherokee heritage. My Great grandfather was an Medicine Man. When he died unexpectedly My Great grandmother took her son
( my grandfather ) and moved to another part of the country, where she met and married another man of no indian decent. I was always interested in my heritage but have never been able to find anymore info on my Indian family, Other than that and that our family name was Redfeather, which is why I use that name here and as my e~mail address.

The very breath of heaven is that which flows between the ears of a horse.

The shampoo promised me extra body and I gained three pounds.

Welcome to the team. Colorado is so beautiful. I live in Washington State and love the area, the Cascade mountains are beautiful here.
The Rockies are more rugged than here. I do miss Colorado, we have family in Denver.

i recently found that that thru the man who may be my biological father that i am part cherokee...a small part...and i am peeking in here to see what is going on...i know nothing about cherokee history or traditions. the family is very secretive about all sorts of nonsense so i only know that the cherokee relative, who was female, came from the ala., ohio, tn, or no. caro. area....no names, no further info,..at this time...

O-si-yo! I'm a member of the Cherokee Nation, an adopted Lenni-Lenape. I live with a Cherokee whose son and step-kids are Lenni-Lenape & Cherokee.

I want to join this group in hopes that perhaps we have readers of Native American Literature and maybe we could get a book discussion going. I am finishing up the Native American Lit course at Rogers State University in Claremore, OK and have discovered a new love of book discussion. I don't have time to join a formal book club, so is anyone game to start a discussion group? We could pick a book and author from several we covered in my class or decide on another. I have found I love Louise Erdrich, Leslie Marmon Silko, Sherman Alexie and I want to read Scott Momaday's House Made of Dawn. So anyone interested? I know when my class ends this next week, I'm going to miss sharing and exploring these wonderful books and learning more about the Native American traditions of storytelling.

Wa-do!!


1. FIRST NAME? Sandee
2. CITY IN WHICH YOU LIVE? Catoosa
3. WHEN IS YOUR BIRTHDAY? April
4. SIGNIFICANT OTHER? Doug - Cherokee
5. CHILDREN? GRANDCHILDREN? Nope, but step-kids and grandkids.
6. PETS? no - my dog died a few years ago & my heart isn't ready for another yet.
7. FAVORITE SNACK FOOD? right now cocoa & stevia covered strawberries with a little milk
8. FAVORITE EXERCISE? elliptical or hiking
9. HOBBY? no time, I'm a non-traditional student working fulltime, but would like to get a book discussion going on Native American Lit & authors
10.ANYTHING ELSE? I am a stress eater and I've been wanting to eat while working on homework, but I got on SparkPeople and found the Cherokee Nation group - Awesome!!

Back on Track!!

Osiyo Nigadv!
I just joined the spark a few days ago, but just know found the time to browse the teams. TY for letting me join and how happy I was to see a Cherokee group here! Anyway, about me;
..I am a wife and mother of little 2year old, Gabrielle Aiyana, she is my "everything" in this world.
..I do not work right now. I have had a few surgeries in the past 5 years that made miss atol of work, then of course my little bundle of joy is a job herself.
..I am a muticrafter. I enjoy sewing, painting, airbrushing, sculpting, jewelry making, floral arranging and my newest is tattooing.

I would like to say; "Happy Thanksgiving" to everyone.

Hi, I'm Ann, I live in Northfield, Ohio (about 20 miles SE of Cleveland). I was born on July 12th. I'm married to John and have two children, Josh and MaryBeth. I also have two furkids - Sheba and Shadow (both dogs). My favorite snack food is ice cream but its a very rare treat nowadays. My usual exercise is walking. In my spare time I like to visit SparkPeople and read almost any kind of book. I homeschool my daughter who is considered a high-functioning autistic, also she has ADHD.

FIRST OF ALL WELCOME STRAWBERRYWOMAN I HAVE NEVER HEARD THAT STORY BEFORE.

OKAY HERE IS THE PLAN, WE SHOULD EXPERIMENT WITH DIFFERENT THINGS LIKE MAKING SUGAR FREE LOW CALORIE SMOOTHIE AND FREEZE THEM, I THINK THAT WE COULD USE FRESH FRUIT FOR FLAVOR ESPECIALLY STRAWBERRIES AND RASPBERRIES. THERE ARE A LOT OF THE SUGAR FREE WATER ADDITIVES THAT WE COULD MAKE POPSICLES WITH, WITH THAT THOUGHT I AM GOING TO DIG OUT MY POPSICLE MAKER THE RUBBERMAID KIND AND MIX UP SOME FOR A TREAT TODAY, I HAVE ORANGE FLAVORING FOR WATER IT HAS 100% OF OUR REQUIRED VITAMIN C AND IT ONLY HAS 5 LITTLE CALORIES, THAT SHOULD MAKE FOUR POPSICLES. WOULD EVERYONE ELSE TAKE A CRACK AT HELPING US SOLVE OUR DESIRE FOR THE COLD STUFF. I WILL LET YOU KNOW HOW THEY TURN OUT.SANDY emoticon

Yes I did come up with another thing. The reason my username is Strawberrywoman. I am part Cherokee and one of my favorite legends is about first man and first woman. About how they fought and where first womans tears fell and after they made up Strawberries grew. And that we should keep Strawberries in our homes to remind up not to fight. Also I really do love Strawberries.

Hi Granni: We did go out gold panning one time with a small sluice box and some pans and found a few flakes. It was very exciting. We have been talking about getting more involved though with it. Some friends of my fiance have been prospecting pretty regularly with good luck.

Thanks for the warm welcome!

Glad you're here, Sue. I'm a northern tribal member but I have been to many powwows and ceremonies in Oklahoma.

Alaska is one of the two states that I haven't been to, yet, I hope to one day soon.

Fan Tan Fanny was leaving her man,
Fan Tan Fanny kept waving her fan,
Said 'Goodbye, Danny, you two-timing Dan,
Some other man loves your little Fanny, Bye Bye!'

In the ice box, you'll find in a can
Some leftovers of Moo Goo Gai Pan.
Fan Tan Fanny has found a new guy.
His name is Manny, He's good for Fanny,
So goodbye Danny, Goodbye!
Bye bye! Bye bye! Bye bye!
