Well, she says that her father was bear clan from the Lakota. Though, she doesn't say
which group of Lakota - seems kinda odd, eh?
She says her mother was from the Southern Cherokee Band - I don't think thats likely
to be perfectly honest. To begin with, while there are *several* "Southern Cherokee"
Bands - none of them were really around when this woman was born 61 years ago.
And secondly, having an Owl for a protector (odd for a Cherokee) wouldn't make it
your clan, there never was an Owl clan.
I think shes full of it.
As to what her name could possibly mean - I haven't the foggiest. It'd take someone
fluent in whatever language shes speaking to translate it. But I'm sure that whatever it
is, it's quite impressive.

There's no "bear clan" of any Lakota band. We didn't use clan systems. There's no "Bear" tiospaye, either...somebody's full of shit.
