    Just regarding her looks, she is rather likely American Indian (native American), not Asian Indian. Almost prototypical. (Though one of the outstanding beautiful examples.) Her slightly Mongolian eyes, sharp nose and her mouth are untypical for (East) Indians, but common with Native Americans.

    So I would rather write “possibly Native American”, as she claimed for herself.

    It hardly gets more Native American…
