No, you are not part Cherokee. And neither is Elizabeth Warren.
Meagan Day

This is SO true. I grew up in Tulsa and learned all about the Five Civilized Tribes and it became a running joke — what happened to the other four? Everyone and their cousins — especially outside of Oklahoma — that claims any native blood almost always claims to be Cherokee. I’ve offended several people who are white as sheets that tell me they have native blood by saying ahead of them “let me guess — Cherokee — right?” (PS — I’m white as they come — not a drop of native blood.)

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
