Things I never knew

Well, this reconnection with my father's side of the family is certainly providing interesting information. For instance, I just found out that my great-grandfather on my father's side was a full-blooded Mohawk Indian from Canada! I had no idea that I had Native American heritage, and it just tickles me to death. Every since I was a child, I've been drawn to stories about Native Americans and have felt some sort of affinity with them.

Way cool, huh?

Right on Marla. Its way cool. My Dad's Mom was Choctaw. Unfortunately, my Dad's Mom died when he was two, so he doesn't know anything about which tribe of Choctaw Nation we come from or any of the customs. But it does make me proud to say that I am Native American.
