Grant-Lee has said:

My great-grandmother, on my mom’s side, was full blooded Creek… She died before I was born, but I knew her sister, my aunt. She was the last of the full-bloods in my family… There’s also a lot of Cherokee on my dad’s side, so when you put it all together, I’m nearly as Native as I am of European descent. The Creek and Cherokee people coupled with Scottish and German immigrants hundreds of years ago. The mixing of blood, cultures – that’s the American story.
