India has said:
I’m actually kind of mixed. I’m learning more every day. I usually just say French Indian, because it’s the easiest, but there’s a massive Irish part to my family. I found out some other day some native Indian. It’s always just something new. We really don’t know that much about our history, but British, Irish, French Indian, I think, are the major parts.
