High Cheekbones and Straight Black Hair?

<< < (2/2)

Buffalo Ridge:
I think that the Federal Government just recognized several groups based on "High Cheekbones and Straight Black Hair". Their histories were pasted together because of their location and their ancestor's association with those areas, but nothing more. Their DNA does not support their claims much like the Lumbee. I've seen it FIRST hand.

Especially Cherokee, when their family, extended family and ancestors were no where near Oklahoma or any other Indian reservation. And of course there's the comment section with the very angry comments.

That link now yields a 404 (not found) error message. I found that the article has been moved and a "Editor's note" was added:


The original comments mentioned by Diana are gone; now there is only one, more recent, comment. And the article is much longer than the bit quoted by Diana. This time, there is no "click to read the rest" link, it's all in one piece.
