GENETIC PRESERVATION IS JUST AS IMPORTANT TO A COMPLETE INDIGENOUS IDENTITY - YOU CAN"T PICK & CHOOSE WHAT SUITS YOU TO MAINTAIN

                                            Ward Churchill the alleged 'Native American'

Rachel Dolezal - the proven 100% FAKE 'African American' as a white youth (left) - and as a fake black adult (right).

Just because you are a DESCENDANT of a tribal nation & culture does not mean that you are a MEMBER of that Tribal Nation or culture, being of mixed descent is NOT your 'fault'....but UNLESS you have always been or have become - an ACTIVE participant in that Tribal Nation & culture - YOU ARE NOT A TRUE MEMBER OF IT.....Ask yourself these 6 questions and see how you score:
#1 - Do you live in the tribe on Tribal Lands or do you plan to?
# 2 - Did you marry in the tribe or do you plan to?
# 3 - Do you speak your tribes language or are you trying to learn it?
# 4 - Do you practice the ancestral tribal spirituality or are you learning it?
# 5 - Do you practice the ancestral tribal cultural traditions or are you learning them?
# 6 - Do you volunteer to do ANYTHING to help members of the tribe less fortunate than you?

If you have DNA of the tribe in you but you answer NO to ALL SIX of these questions - you are NOT a member of the tribe - you are JUST A DESCENDANT OF THE TRIBE - BIG DIFFERENCE!
At an honest minimum - you need to be able to say YES to a at least 4 of these questions to be credible when you go around claiming to be a member of your tribe. I am mixed myself - but everyone knows (just by google searching my full name 'Damon Gerard Corrie' yourself independently - don't just take my word for it) I can say yes to all 6 of the criteria above.
I have several mixed race native American friends who no longer have the phenotype - but they can say yes to at least 4 of the criteria above, so their native identities are NOT in question...for their ACTIONS attest to their genuineness (talk is ALWAYS cheap - and anyone can claim anything - but not everyone can PROVE it).

Think about it BOTH logically & spiritually....IF you honestly believe - as the great Apache Chief Geronimo said that: 'EVERYTHING has power'...how could you possibly NOT also then conclude that our DNA - the very building blocks of our physical bodies with its ability to transmit inter-generational information (even trauma) - would 'not be as important as every other aspect of our heritage'?
Therefore if you are 1/16 native american (that is 6.25%) - that means your are 15/16th (93.75%) SOMETHING ELSE....and don't you think that all of your NON-native American DNA encoded info in your body would ALSO be effecting how you think and act and NOT allowing for any pure & unfiltered native biologically inherited 'power' to come through and be expressed in you! I suspect this is why we have such problems with heavily mixed native descendants NOT wanting to follow the advice and instructions of their less mixed or even un-mixed elders....who do YOU think would have a better understanding of what it is to be an 'Indian' except one who fully IS an Indian in EVERY way...if you let your mostly non-native ego govern your 'identity' you will naturally resist humbling yourself before your TRADITIONALIST more fully native (physically, mentally & spiritually) teachers....and this is EXACTLY what we see today....'part natives' wanting to argue with 'full natives' about what it 'really means' to be native....what utter rubbish and hypocrisy!
I deliberately stressed TRADITIONALIST - because a pro-ASSIMILATIONIST 'full blood' is no damn better at teaching you anything of traditional value than a non-native...so don't just go by external appearance alone...if you want authentic native heritage - find an authentic native TRADITIONALIST to teach you.


HERE IS A HUGE 'IDENTITY' DOUBLE STANDARD THAT WE TEND NOT TO NOTICE
I am talking about the fact that in the USA for example - people like Ward Churchill who claims to be one sixteenth native American - just 6.25% (that is literally NOTHING to an unmixed native person) - is ACCEPTED by non-native Americans as a 'native American' and furthermore - they expect racially unmixed native Americans to accept Ward Churchill as one of their own as well! I have heard folks say 'as long as you are one drop native you are native...' really? I personally NEVER heard any unmixed native traditionalist elder say that - only mixed ones (to justify themselves).....because common sense will tell you that if a 93.75% black & 6.25% white person WILL NOT BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY BY ANYONE if they go around saying that they are a 'white person' - WHY THE HELL SHOULD WE BE EXPECTED TO ACCEPT A 93.75% NON-NATIVE AS A NATIVE? A lot of folks claiming to be native American look decidedly NOT native American to anyone who knows what the unmixed 'Amerind' phenotype looks like (look at any of the uncontacted tribes in the Amazon - ALL Mongoloid looking - when they are first revealed in photographs and you will see exactly what I am talking about, none of the imagined features many a modern day non-Amerindian 'storyteller' would like you to believe about European, Middle Eastern or African phenotypes as being the 'real natives of the Americas').
Again, if even 1% is in your DNA you CAN say you are a 'PART DESCENDANT OF'...but to say that you 'ARE' (which connotes that you have a 'current active membership status') is a quite different matter indeed (unless you pass at least 4 of the 6 criteria listed in the opening paragraph).

Let us look at two famous men the WORLD views as 'Black men'....Bob Marley and Barak Obama - BOTH OF WHOM ARE LITERALLY 50% Caucasian, yet we ALL know that NO 'pure' (or pure looking) Caucasian (aka 'white') person has EVER or will EVER accept Bob Marley OR Barak Obama as 'a white man'......why? Because they do NOT look 'Caucasian' ...just like Ward Churchill does not look 'native American' to any racially unmixed native American person either.
We can look at Rachel Dolezal who pretended to be black for years - even got a big NAACP job - yet is 100% white, here is what her mother said:
Dolezal's mother, Ruthanne, pointed out to MSNBC that her daughter did not apologize in the Facebook post or address "the issue of being dishonest about her ethnicity."

"I don't see any honest way that a person can describe themselves as 'transracial' because your ethnicity comes from your genetic code and what's handed down to you by your parents, your real biological parents," the mother said. "And I think the healthy path to take on this kind of discussion is to find a way to embrace and celebrate who you are — or who you really are."

I agree, why would anyone be a 'WANNA-BE' of ANY race that they are not? Do you have such low self-esteem or self-contempt that you want to try to masquerade as someone else? You can be a lifelong admirer or supporter of another ethnic group/race WITHOUT trying to pretend to be one of them. Go and research your OWN ancestral roots & cultures and HONOR THAT - as it would be GENUINE, not this 'horse & pony show' you keep putting on for the world.
We have all met someone who is 'sure' they were a 'native American' in a previous life...ok, 'but you ARE someone of a different race in THIS life - so deal with THAT TODAY.
IF you were told that you have been 'adopted' into a tribe in some ceremony, that still does not make you NOW or EVER a true member of that tribe, you have to have the DNA of that tribe of human beings in your DNA to be a genuine all-round member of that tribe...for their are things that may NEVER be shared with you as an adoptee - because it is not in your DNA - and never will be.
Some tribes (especially in North America) have very loose criteria today for membership, and have had this loose criteria for many years, but you need to ask yourself - is it because that is how the tribe 'always' functioned...or is it more due to the fact that this tribe allowing this today began to become racially mixed - 'coincidentally' right around the time the criteria for tribal membership became 'loosened'?
I see a lot of modern attitudes claiming to have 'always been part of native cultures'.....but when I ask other native peoples if this activity was 'always' part of their culture, 99% of tribes say it began AFTER contact with non-natives began....just because a minority practiced/tolerated something - does NOT make it 'a universal norm' for native peoples of the Americas, we know what was 'normal behavior' for us, but 'normal' for one tribe did not mean 'normal' for all tribes....be cognizant of this simple fact.

In most South American tribes (and we are far less racially mixed than North American tribes for example) - you CEASE to be considered to be 'of any biological significance' to the tribe in most tribes - if you are less than 50% indigenous (of the tribe in question), and a bit more rarely a minority of tribes will still recognize you down to 1/3 (33.3%) or 1/4 (25%) - but it depends on how you LOOK and how you LIVE....purely for the simple fact that GENETIC INHERITANCE AND CULTURAL IDENTITY IS IMPORTANT....just because you are 50% it does not mean you are not a 'genetic threat' to the survival of the ancestral phenotype....because even if you are 50% but you LOOK 100% non-native....it means that very likely the DNA you will transmit is NOT going to be that of the ancestral tribal phenotype.....so if your kids ALSO look nothing like the tribes ancestors - they are merely contributing to the genetic extinction of the ancestral tribal DNA....and that is one superhighway to COMPLETE EXTINCTION of the tribe in general.

Would YOU like to see a day in the future when the Zulu Red Dance in South Africa is performed by white South Africans claiming to be Zulus because they are one-sixteenth (6.25%) Zulu? NO YOU WOULD NOT! Likewise WE do not like to see a bunch of fools - who look NOTHING like our native tribal ancestors - wearing our regalia (often incorrectly) and doing our sacred ceremonies (also incorrectly), and claiming they are 'native Americans' because they are 'one sixteenth native' (6.25%)....a tribe must really be desperate for members to sink so low as to accept a 6.25% native as a 'full tribal member'.

Many people who do not realize that not only our languages, spirituality, cultural traditions etc DESERVE to be preserved and transmitted on into the future INTACT JUST AS THEY WERE INHERITED - so too does our GENETIC INHERITANCE.....when you belong to a tribe of just a few hundred or thousand people EVERYTHING THAT COMPRISES OUR ANCESTRAL INHERITANCE IS IMPORTANT...not just parts of it......can you live well in a house that has a wall missing? Or part of the roof or foundation absent? NO YOU CANNOT!

You can attack me and say I am 'preaching racism'.....but I can counter and tell you that for you to expect us to be content to surrender something so vital as our DNA to please your 'politically correct' sense of human identity today is ITSELF a form of racism. I know firsthand of once fully native communities in various South American countries that became so racially mixed over time that you could NO LONGER FIND ANYONE THERE THAT STILL LOOKED LIKE THEIR INDIGENOUS ANCESTORS THE FIRST EUROPEAN INVADERS SAW....and the Neo-Colonial modern day state simply re-classified them as a regular racially diverse non-indigenous community and they lost their status as a native community....so if you are preaching the 'lets all racially intermix and forget about preservation of ancestral DNA - you are literally setting the stage for the future OBLIVION of us as distinct ethnic groups of peoples on the face of the Earth.
Did you ever stop and think that this 'intermixing agenda' might just be another way to 'ethnically cleanse' us from our remaining lands & territories?

You always tend to hear the 'we are all one race the human race' touchy-feely argument from people who are THEMSELVES racially mixed (and especially from the ones who no longer know for a fact which tribe their own ancestors belonged to...in their heart of hearts they do not even see the sense of a tribal identity as being anything important for 'progressive' human beings...but they might not admit that to you).
Yes we might be 'one race' as 'Homo sapiens' but we are DEFINITELY NOT 'one people' - we are THOUSANDS of peoples! EACH WITH A RIGHT TO CONTINUE TO EXIST AS SUCH INTACT- SEPARATE - AND EQUAL.... unless you know nothing about the definition of what constitutes a 'people' under International Human Rights Laws & Conventions.
We have EVERY RIGHT to MAINTAIN OUR UNIQUENESS as different PEOPLES on humanity - and you have no right to tell those of us who value ALL of our tangible & intangible heritage and seek to preserve it for eternity - that we are 'backward racists'.

You can be friends of ALL and live in brotherhood with ALL (as I do), but STILL advise the unmixed members of your people to try to retain their un-mixed status in their children by choice of a similarly un-mixed spouse (as I do)....the mixed ones (like me) are not vital to the genetic survival of the tribe (so who we marry is not as important - though I chose to marry in my tribe), but we can serve our Tribal Nation of people in the preservation of our heritage in all the other ways I listed WITHOUT creating more newly mixed progeny from girls who could instead produce unmixed children with a different spouse who is unmixed like them. 
I LOVE to see DIVERSITY in the world, the Creator has made us all different hues (like human flowers) to live TOGETHER like a rainbow over the face of the meadow of the Earth, but even in a rainbow EACH color can still be INDIVIDUALLY IDENTIFIED - it is never one bland monochromatic spectacle...so try to learn something from that divine example itself.

So in summation, my humble advice is if you ARE a genetic descendant but no longer look like your mongoloid-looking native American ancestors did (you MUST own a mirror so you should know) be sure to state THAT fact when you introduce yourself to people....I introduce myself as a Lokono-Arawak of mixed ancestry....thereby letting you know which native tribe of people I have the DNA of & belong to, and proudly identify with (LOKONO-ARAWAK) - but I ALSO let you know the unmixed ones do NOT look exactly as I do...and I do not say broadly 'I am a Lokono-Arawak' as if I am unmixed...because this will confuse people who are uneducated, I remember once a man who looked northern European (even had white skin, blond hair & blue eyes) telling a group of non-native people that he was 'an Apache Indian' (he claimed he was some tiny percentage)...and after he left those same people were talking among themselves and saying that they 'never knew Indians looked just like Nordic Europeans' - and about how 'Hollywood has people mistakenly thinking real Indians have straight black hair and brown skins when in fact 'real' Indians looked white'...so you see how your ONE genetic misrepresentation can cause CONFUSION. Be honest with your own damn self and EVERYONE ELSE - and let them know the FACT that you are NOT an example of a 'racially unmixed' member of your tribe, but are in fact a racially mixed one (so they don't get confused)....for the TRUTH shall set you free my brother!

Here is another example of what dangers of unscientific opinions can cause - if you believe this - no scientific evidence/proof provided article - you will be led to believe that un-mixed Amerindians have curly hair - all because this author ASSUMES this to be so based on ONE photograph of ONE uncontacted indian in Brazil:

http://theracecardproject.com/natives-can-curls-without-admixture/

Now let me - as I am betting my life that the author does NOT know as many un-mixed Amerindians from this Hemisphere as I do, nor visited as many of their tribal communities in person in as many countries as I have, so let ME share what I posted as a comment to this on FB on 7 February 2016:
"  I was hoping this author had some dna evidence from the Awa man to present an ironclad case, her counter argument is itself conjecture...we need more scientific proof, all I can tell you from my own personal experience is that every Amerindian I have ever met from South America to Central America that had curly hair had some known admixture (come visit my Lokono-Arawak tribe - we have never lost our tribal structure and territorial habitation) and ask all the curly haired ones yourself).....and we are talking a period of potential dna admixture that goes back almost 500 years in Brazil, many tribes fled into the wilderness long ago and became 'uncontacted', others were never contacted till now (a few still out there free to this day), and I have a friend in FUNAI (the Brazil government agency that deals with the Awa and others, and they say the tribe took in members from other tribes that were fleeing persecution...so until this one man's DNA is revealed and shows no admixture whatsoever....this is not a 'closed case' yet....and still is just what this author wants to believe. A quick google image search of non-assimilated Amerindian peoples - even if you just look at all the pics of uncontacted tribes alone - will turn up a minimum of 99% straight hair persons....check for yourself. To use ONE photo of one person as 'proof' is not convincing at all...my father-in-law is pure, but even he remembers his father telling him that runaway African slaves in South America - living just as naked as our people - used to live in the jungles near our lands and others tribes and take their food at times, sometimes their girls too. So I can see how that man could look as he does today....but not just based on my own opinion. If someone posted a pic of a blue eyed Amerindian (several of them now, but all I know have some European dna) would we accept that as 'proof' that pure Amerindians don't really have brown irises as a general rule?"

I am racially mixed myself, but at least I more closely resemble my mothers Amerindian ancestry I have identified with & been loyal too all my life - and our reservation-born children can say the same (naturally - as now they are MOSTLY Amerind with the added infusion from their mongoloid looking Tribal mother).

Watch these clowns in Europe make a mockery of our culture - but they will tell you they are 'honoring us'.....I see only 2 real natives joining them in their buffoonery....if they were traditionalists they would not participate in this comedy show.  How impoverished in spirit must you be to do such things?

REAL natives do not even need to wear traditional regalia to do certain tribal dances (but you will never see anyone being 'twirled' by their partner):
