Am I a "twinkie"?
Advertisements [?]
I just posted to a native american group on myspace. They seem quite hostile. They were even more so when I identified myself as having Cherokee blood. Sort of got an internet eye roll.

Is "Cherokee" the wrong word? Am I to ignore the Cherokee great, great, great, grandma as if she weren't as much a part of my heritage as the Norweigian?

How do you feel about the use of that word to describe me?
