Are there any Chippewa that post on this forum or Native Americans?

And contrary to this sites belief, this topic is in fact contributing to a conversation :-P....now that it has 2 lines.

I am Potawatomi indian. We seem to be a dieing breed.....

PS: why is it so hard to get proof that you are indian blood to get gov/tribe assistance?

Sorry it took so long to respond. I have been going through some medical issues. It's hard because there are many people that are claiming to be Native American just so they can get a scholarship or have a better chance of getting into a college, because of this there has to be very legitimate documents. Sometimes only your parents and your birth certificate is enough......other times there is much more needed depending on whether this can prove enough of your ancestery. It is much easier to be accepted if you are Metis blood, like I am, because many Metis do not actually look Native American. I always say my NA traits are skin deep.
