Re: Louisiana Redbones
In Response To: Louisiana Redbones ()
I know this is years late! I'm just starting to resaerch and understand how ubscure the history is. I am from the group of people refered to as redbones. I did not grow up in the area. I do have some limited info as to what I've been told by my grandparents etc. who still live there. We are Native American and European. We tend to be quite private people.( Much of us who do not live there it is a result of the military bases. My parents meet during Veitnam when my father was stationed at fort polk.) Most of the older generation will not admit to being of mixed heritage because of the stigma, and I guess the danger they used to face. As a result much of the history has been lost and forgotten. All this to say if any of you find out more would you please let me know.
