Re: INDIAN BLOOD
In Response To: INDIAN BLOOD ()
It is loss of culture that consumes the Indian quicker than any race mixing. I know people who look white, yet speak Cherokee, lives as Cherokees and worship as Cherokees. And I know people who look like full blood Cherokees, yet everything about them is white. The same is true of mixed race Cherokee/blacks. Race mixing is a factor in loss of culture. Television, popular culture, public education all contribute to the destruction of the authentic identity of the American Indian.
