My mother’s mother is Jewish and African, so I guess that would be considered Creole. My mother’s father was Cherokee Indian and something else. My dad’s mother’s Puerto Rican and black, and his father was from Barbados.
It is not clear if Meagan’s Cherokee Native American or Jewish lineages have been verified/documented.
