"My grandmother was an Indian".
Thousands of Americans "wannabe" Indians, but they are not.
Indians are all full bloods.
The majority of Indians are of mixed heritage.
All Indians have an "Indian name".
Most Indians have only a Euro-American name.
A minority of Indians also have "Indian names."
Most Indians know the histories, languages and cultural aspects of
their own tribe and of other tribes.
Few Indians know all cultural aspects of their own tribes, much
less those of other tribes.
