WHAT? My grandfather's grandmother was half Cherokee Indian? I had no idea until three years ago?! This would have been so cool to have know in 4th grade when we spent six weeks studying Native American tribes. According to my math, I'm one thirty seconds Cherokee Indian!
My Grandfather's Grandmama - 1/2 Cherokee Indian
My Grandfather's Dad - 1/4 Cherokee Indian
My Grandfather - 1/8 Cherokee Indian
My Mother - 1/16 Cherokee Indian
Me - 1/32 Cherokee Indian!!
When we were in Washington D.C. visiting in the National Museum of the American Indian my husband walked me over to the Cherokee Indian display and looked at me and said; "Honey, these are your people."
It made me laugh.
