    Any clue on the specific tribe? Or is he another case of people claiming Native heritage?

      I have the same question. Where is the confirmation of the Native American heritage?

      • madman says:

        His background was mentioned in the article that’s now unavailable. I think it was an interview, so it’s possible he mentioned it himself, but I don’t know.

          I guess my point is that we don’t add ancestries that can’t be confirmed, especially Native American claims given how often false they are. At best, I’d least “possibly Native American.”

            I tried my best to track down his family and I only learned that his mother is called Cassandra Walls-Ward. I can’t even figure out where she’s from (her linkedin says she went to UCLA).

            Did you make these rules for the site?

            There are many times where we add ancestries that aren’t yet confirmed. Thousands of celebrities are listed as what their ancestry is “said” to be, for example on Wikipedia, when we might only know the parents’ names and nothing else. Many are also based on articles from papers. And obviously, many are totally based on the celebrity’s own statements, even though we know how many previous such statements has turned out to be incorrect.

            The point is, if there is literally no information about someone’s ancestry to go on, it’s not unreasonable to use an article or a statement as the base for a page. If I knew, for example, that Sinqua’s father was Jamaican, I might’ve put “African-Jamaican, possibly other”. When we know more, the page will be updated and false bits will be removed, not a big deal.
