Clarification of dna tests

Hello everyone, am interested in doing the mtDNA for NA ancestry. Oral history has it that my mother's mother was of NA ancestry, therefore, my mother>me. My question: If my mom erred in her oral hx regarding her mom's mom (my ggrandmother)and the NA ancestor is my mom's grandfather (mom's mother's father), would the mtDNA reveal NA ancestry for my grandmother>my mom>me since mtDNA tests the maternal side? I'm of the impression that it should include my mom and her mom, if this is so. Thanks to anyone who cares to answer this; it probably is terribly confusing.
