Billie, I must speak, this is not the case for me. If I wanted to send my children to Indian college, I could. My husband has his Indian heritage traced, his father is a Cherokee card holder. Now this may be the case for some people. It would be nice though if the goverment WOULD give Indian descendents all the priveledges they deserve but this isn't the case. My white ancestors came here and stole the land from the Indians. They did not buy it legally. They came here and started a war. Forced them to except the white mans terms and no more no less. Greed and Hatred ruins lives. I WOULD give my eye teeth to be Indian not because of privileges but for my ancestors honor. To prove that they did not make up a fairy tale. If I find that it is a fairy tale, SHAME ON THEM! They will be PROUD of me for wanting to DEFEND their HONOR. Whatever the outcome may be. As I said once before, MUTTS are known to be kind, gentle and LOYAL. PEACE BE WITH US! Stacy.
