In the book New York Times The Times of the Seventies: The Culture, Politics, and Personalities that Shaped the Decade, edited by Clybe Haberman, it is written:

Beverly has interesting blood lines: Her father, a machine operator, is part
Blackfoot Indian, and her mother, a surgical technician, is a Louisiana Creole.
