I doubt his maternal grandmother is 100% Native American.

Glad to see him represent we Navajo’s my greatgrandmother was part Navajo. My great-greatgrandmother was pure Navajo. Making me 1/16th. I know not a lot but its still part of my heritage. My greatgrandfather was Scottish. Making me 1/8th. What is interesting is my maternal great-great grand parents, parents where from the south and fled doing the civil war because they were an interracial couple. My great,great, great grand father was a solider in the civil war fro. Arkansas of english descent. More trivia. Lol

His Father is European/Caucasian but not sure what ethnic groups. His maternal grandfather is Japanese and his maternal grandmother is Navajo. Making him like a quarter each.
