If you say “Rez”, instead of Reservation, either you are Native or know people who are Native. 😀
If you know what “frybread” is, you might have “red” blood.
If you look at a buffalo and imagine it on your plate wrapped inside of a hot tortilla with red beans and rice……you are most certainly Native.
If you have ever made tortillas from scratch, WITHOUT using a tortilla press, then you may be Native. I have mastered a perfectly round tortilla, simply by patting it in my hands. That takes skills folks and a lot of wasted Masa.
If your Grandfather tells you to marry from the neighboring tribe rather than your own, here is the reason why…………..
“Raven, you need to marry an Indian boy. Just make sure you don’t marry one from your own tribe…….you might be cousins.” (Truth)
If you are familiar with Happy Hunting Grounds….you may be Native. ❤ 😀
My home was unique. I was raised with Native, Black and Latin culture. (Though I have no Latin blood), but because my Grandparents, mother, Aunt and Uncles came from New York, they were around a lot of culture. The greatest culture was the Latin culture. So all of those cultural influences in my home meant 2 things………it was never boring, and, we NEVER ran out of rice. 😀 Thank God for biracial/tri-racial families. I LOVE it!!!!!!!!!! ❤ ❤ ❤
