    “Benjamin has said that he is of Mexican, English, Native American, Iranian, French, and Swedish ancestry. It is not clear if this Native American ancestry has been verified/documented.”

    I know folks try to seperate them out, but if he’s a quarter Mexican, it is very likely he has native ancestry, too, regardless of whether or not he might have other, more direct native lines.

    It’s like, yeah, you almost certainly have indigenous ancestry through your Mexican heritage at the very least.
