Hello, this is my first post and I hope I can get help for it...Please be kind- my family is confusing; Mom's Mom; My aunt and my mom have been trying to trace back the history of my family for 5 years now. They found from my great grandma on their side back, were full Seneca Indian. My grandma herself was too. As for history, my great grandma was taken off her tribe's land and sold into slavery and my grandma herself was put on the orphan train and sold. They both got their names changed. We don't know my great grandma. Grandma herself could not get her orphan train files and neither can we because she's passed away and only the orphan can get the records. We know she was full Seneca as well but cannot prove it to get status without records. Grandma has one picture of great grandma and it has Native writing of some sort on the back of it. Mom's dad: My grandpa was half Native- his dad was a white bounty hunter in Canada and he won my grandpa's mom in a poker contest. We don't have records for her, but we know she was because his dad did not deny she was. Dad's family; They're of european decent but his mom claims they have 1/16 Sioux. Which, I am not sure if this is true.
My family wants to get to the reservation- all of us. But we can't without the files we can't retrieve. My questions are, because of my mom's side of the family, how much native does that make me? And what about my father? Would I qualify as native? And how do we get this proof that we are native?

Hello and welcome Inoli Uwo'duhi! I'm not good at fractions when it comes to figuring Native blood. Maybe your mom or aunt has tried MyTribalSpace.com...if not, there are plenty of full blooded and Natives who live on reservations, with profiles on the site.

twoblades: Hi Chuck. I am Cherokee and we use the word A'ho as the closing to our prayer. Wado is "western dialect Cherokee" but we use it in the "Eastern dialect" as well because it is recognized.

cherokeebutterfly: Good Day. I just found this page and would like to know more about my ancestry. It is my belief according to my online genealogy that Cherokee Chief John Bowles is my 6th or 7th generation grandfather. I have found other Bowles members that say the same.

chuck: Also, I have read that the Cherokee do not use this word A'HO as thank you, but uses the word wado.

chuck: I have studied the word A'HO and have read in studies that various tribes use this word as greeting, thank you, or ending in prayer. However in further study I read that this is not true and that this word is not real or used. Any thoughts?
