    • follers says:

      He’s Native Canadian. :-)

    • guurl says:

      -.- his native blood is insignificant.

      • leslie2 says:

        I don’t know if you mean his blood percent is insignificant, or if his Native blood is too low to be significant or for him to be Native.

        if it’s the first, Clearly you must not be Native or one of thoughs fake-wannabe-deluded full blooded black/white Americans who think the one drop of Native blood or family tales with NO PROOF is significant to call themselves Native when in fact you people are a JOKE, and only Natives, Non-Canadians and Non-Americans seem to think blood quantum matters, because it does. Thank goodness for people like Follers on this site, to help set people straight about the facts.

        If you aren’t Native, Please do not speak FOR US.
        Just like any other race, we do not consider someone with 1/120th to be us, why would we? because they are not. Not just by blood quantum (MOST IMPORTANT) but they probably don’t know their tribe, reserve, anything, nothing in their spirit.

        I apologize if this is not the case and you are just agreeing with follers and I, however, I am more inclined to think you are disagreeing with us.

        Either way, please do not spread your own hearsay to speak for Natives, hardly any if any atall think blood quantum does not matter, it only seems to be the low bloods who think it is racist. It was meant to get right of our rights alongggg time ago, but now has been a godsend to keep our true Natives/Half Natives(recently)AND CULTURE ALIVE.
