Deena, Didn't mean to ruffle your feathers just trying to get to the bottom of my family history. My grandmother knew that she was blackfoot. Many things may not have been documented in the generstions before her especially IF my BLACKFOOT INDIAN ancestor was illegitimate. I said if. I am still searching. This is the reason I posted the query in the first place. To see if any others were told what I was told by my grandmother. I hope eventually this puzzle will be solved and proven. I am proud of who I am. No document will say otherwise. People slip through the cracks today with modern technology, imagine what it was like in the generations before us. Especially with a people on the run and in hiding. The secrets of the white man not wanting to claim their own because of whispers of others. Don't ask for documentation when most whites tried to hide the fact of their inbreeding. It was a disgrace in their time especially for an illegitimate! Some indians took the white name to hide, especially if they could pass for white. Maybe I have been watching to many movies. Every family tale has truth you just have to find it. When I do you will be the first to know. If I have to die trying. A little competition to get me moving. That is all it takes. Thanks for your little push!
