Megan Fox is an American actress and model. She is famous for her roles in the films Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, Transformers, Jennifer’s Body, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Megan is the daughter of Gloria Darlene (Cisson) and Franklin Thomas Fox. A picture of her parents can be seen here. Megan is married to actor and musician Brian Austin Green, with whom she has three children.

Megan is of mostly English descent. She also has small amounts of Scottish, German, and Scots-Irish/Northern Irish ancestry, along with distant French and Welsh roots, as well as possibly 1/256th Powhatan Native American ancestry.

Megan’s Instagram profile is titled “the_native_tiger,” and she previously referred to herself as “Child of the Cherokee Tribe” on that site. She has also stated, several times, that she is of part Cherokee Native American ancestry.

Megan’s great-great-great-great-great-great-grandmother, Mary Powhatan, was said to be Native American, and of the Powhatan tribe. This ancestry comes through Megan’s paternal grandmother. If this claim accurate, it would make Megan of 1/256 Native American ancestry. No other Native American ancestry, Cherokee or otherwise, has been documented on any of Megan’s publicly available family trees. All of Megan’s grandparents, great-grandparents, and great-great-grandparents are listed as “White” on United States Censuses.

Megan’s paternal grandfather is Ewell T. Foxx (the son of Arthur Thomas Fox and Mary Elizabeth Pass). Ewell was born in Tennessee. Arthur was the son of John Bunyon Fox and Ellen Dora Ussery. Mary was the daughter of John Henderson Pass and Minnie May Erwin.

Megan’s paternal grandmother was Vivian Vier (the daughter of Shellie Vernon Vier and Maud F. Simerly). Shellie was the son of William Ruban Vier and Nancy T. Adamson/Adams. Maud was the daughter of John Franklin Simerly and Rebecca Ann Teffeteller. Megan has German ancestry through Vivian’s ancestor, Joseph Teffeteller (making Megan of at least 1/64th German descent). Megan also has very distant German ancestry from another of Vivian’s lines (through Vivian’s Rainbolt and Grindstaff/Crantzdorf ancestors).

Megan’s maternal grandfather was Clay Harrison Cisson (the son of William Harrison Cisson and Sallie Ann Martin). Clay was born in Tennessee. William was the son of William Cisson and Sarah Jane Davis. Sallie was the daughter of Columbus Allen Martin and Alice Franklin Davis.

Megan’s maternal grandmother was Thelma Macel Nelson (the daughter of James Ransom Nelson and Dailey I. Nelson). Thelma was born in Tennessee. James was the son of Mark Nelson and Martha Ann Crouch. Dailey was the daughter of Lorenzo Dow Nelson and Rosie/Rose Ann Givens. James Ransom Nelson and Dailey Nelson were first cousins, once removed.

    @TheHelper If she has Native American blood then she is Native American racially. Skin color and physical appearances don’t define what she is.

  2. Ava900 says:

    Skin color and physical appearances don’t define where you come from originally, and what you are. So if she identifies with her Native American ancestry then she is Native American

  3. bleachsoda says:

    She looks 100% white

    • TheHelper says:

      @bleachsoda She is. Most White people who claim Native American ancestry do it because they hate their own race. And most of them don’t have any.

      • Obey says:

        Megan is very white. She looks like a Czech woman who burned herself all week in the sun without being able to tan enough. There are even Polish with these same kind of face features (very thin nose and blue eyes, impossible to belong to a Native). Some artists say they are descendants of Indians just to seem more exotic in showbuzzness.

        • luckystar says:

          Megan is not always tanned. She is natural and very pale in the movie Jennifer’s Body. She looks North Atlantid, very British/Irish face.

        • abritanyxo says:

          Hahaha you are an idiot. Blue eyes can be found in Africa, it’s a recessive gene, not exclusive to the “white” race. Also you will find Africans with thin noses and oval faces, and many Europeans with wide skulls and wide noses. These features are not exclusive to one race.

          • fuzzybear44 says:

            @ abritanyxo

            You’re right,It was proven in 2017, that African have their own version of the light eye gene.The reason I believe you don’t see more, is locations, also Africa is a very dangerous place to just be walking around. Plus Africans are very superstitious, in many African groups, if a child is born(what they consider not normal), They kill. I watched this Documentary on the Kara tribe, this one woman killed 13 of her 20 something children. She killed one for being left handed. Another because the bottom teeth came out first. They were all considered (Mingi) or cursed. There’s another group that kills twins. So you could imagine what would happen to a blue eye baby in wrong group

          • andrew says:

            However you guys are really serious about this topic? Because blue eyes are not that common in parts of Europe and very rare in West Asia, let alone in Sub-Sarahan Africa.

          • andrew says:

            @fuzzybear

            That is nothing. It looks like cannibalism still exists, possibly in parts of Melanesia. Is that the reason why Pacific Islanders are so big? Reasonable question.

      • luckystar says:

        Shes schizo, why u take her words so serious?

      • Ava900 says:

        @TheHelper If she has Native American blood then she is Native American racially. Skin color and physical appearances don’t define what you are

    • abritanyxo says:

      Lol she does NOT look 100% white. She looks Eurasian or Native/White mix. Looks a lot like Olivia Munn and Sacheen Littlefeather. I’ve see many Eastern Europeans with this look, and it’s because many are in fact Eurasian. Someone that looks 100% white would be Brittney Spears, Jennifer Aniston, Tom Hanks, Matt Damon, etc.
