Can anyone tell me exactly how much Scottish she is?

leslie2 October 19, 2013 at 3:47 am

Native-Alaskan?

lmao don’t make me laugh.

All I see is a white woman when I see her or her mother. No way do they have significant or any proof/documents to support thoughs cl
aims.

People in Alaska (not all of course) DESPISE Natives. They blame them for petty issues, and are incredibly racist and bias towards them. They mind is set and is extremely racist. There is hardly any intermixing between the two, and most Native-Alaskans live in remote areas/very far from the major cities such as Anchorage.

Anchorage has major drug issues there supposedly, but yet they think the Natives are scum for having some drinking issues or problems ( come on now, it’s not just Natives with issues, every race has them and people who have issues)
When anchorage is mostly white people, and yet they let the whites go and get off Scott free for crimes without fines, but god forbid a Native commits a crime up there, they are treated badly and looked down on, and even over the top thrown to the ground and beat up.

I’m not even joking. Ive talked to many people in Alaska who are so racist against Natives there is no point in even discussing in, and I researched and saw footage regarding what I’m talking about.

I highly doubt the Palins ever mixed with the Natives, and she’s probably just saying it for the Native vote/support.

Shame on this family.

In this case, the story of the Yup’ik ancestry is correct. Todd Palin is one eighth Yup’ik. Sarah Palin is from Idaho, and has not claimed Native ancestry.

President Obama and Secretary Clinton have both claimed Native American roots, though (in their auobiographies). Both claims remain undocumented, though their family trees have been researched in detail.

Thank you for finding that and pointing it out Follers,

However, 1/8th is much to low to be native. its about 12%, making Bristol 1/16th and 6% Native. the Palins mostly identify as being White, and probably have no connection whatsoever to their tribe/reservation or even connect with Natives on any level. They are pretty much 100% white in their blood and their spirit, and her son/daughter(?) would only be about 2% Alaskan Native, again making Bristol 94% white, and her son/daughter 98% white.

Lmao.

Interesting about Obama and Hillary, Follers, i will have to look into that before I can comment on Barrack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

The third section here discusses them, and other politicians who have claimed Native ancestry (“In her autobiography…”).

Thank you for sharing that follers. That article/website is really good and detailed.

It seems there are MANY fakes and alot of people in politics use to as a way to get the votes/minority groups on their side, and some (including Elizabeth Warren) use it as a way to get teaching jobs. I don’t even know why noone besides certain general public are concerned about the truth and the facts, and yet the MEDIA CONTINUES TO REPORT THIS OR THAT ABOUT IT BEING A NATIVE ISSUE OR THIS PERSON IS NATIVE BECAUSE OF THEIR UNPROVEN CLAIMS.

Honest to goodness, does no one want to know the truth? SHAME on who ever hired Elizabeth Warren and said she was Native. Does she look Native or know anything about her culture/history. NO!

Neither would Barrack Obama or Hilary. They are both raised by WHITE women, and for barrack(Who’s fathers from AFRICA, So is he Native from his father?) Asian(Indonesian-Born and raised) stepfather. They mother’s and their families all identify as being white, so why would they all of sudden be Native?
I couldn’t find anything on Hillary being Native, and No proof, so i highly doubt she is. I’ll look into the other politicians aswell.

Shame on theses people. Using it for benefits only, and for getting ahead.

They are scum, and using it to enhance their exoticness/Appeal is just as bad aswell.

I’m not surprised atall they claim it, or others have aswell. They think they can get our votes by lying to us or pretending to be us, but we know the truth.

Diana – you need to check yourself. Bristol is Native Alaskan (Indian) her ancestry was featured (yes the actual natives) on Sarah Palin’s show. They are down-to-earth REAL people who could take care of themselves with no doubt if and when this world falls apart. All indicitive of native skills………..

Diana February 1, 2011 at 9:14 am

Where does the native Alaskan come into play? Yes, she lives in Alaska, but her mother isn’t part Native, nor is her father. You have come to this conclusion based on her physical appearance. European people have many different features. She looks very similar to Ivanka Trump, who is 100% Caucasoid.

alisse bloom February 16, 2011 at 1:30 pm

Actually, Sarah Palin stated recently on her show that her husband Todd is third generation Native Alaskan.

wonderful example of a Czech country with multiple Hun [asian steppes] invasions.
