97. Or a degree of resentment?
My MIL was 1/4 Cherokee and she was proud of it. She died Aug. 9th of this year and she talked about 'the white man', even though she was married to my FIL for 60 yrs., as she approached her death. Over the years, we collected pottery pieces for her that were made by Cherokees, and she had a collection of Dream Catchers.

I did mention to her that Native Americans were in the Inaugural Parade (she didn't watch it), but I told her about how beautiful the horses looked and the lovely beadwork on the horses and the Chiefs. She was pleased to hear it.

Native Americans haven't been treated well and take care.
