Default Re: Native Americans in games

to the comment about "cherokees." well there was a lot of intermixing but more importantly i think people who had even distant relatives who were cherokee took a lot of pride in it and this is why the idea of blood quantum is tricky. another important point to keep in mind is that black/indians are called into question about their mixed race more than white/indians because of their predominant racialization. this is discussed in Native Americas from a couple years back. i don't really care unless an individual indulges in some hokey-ass shit then i'm like, well it was about whether or not he could prove it and he proved himself....weird, i guess, since i was taught they're not "right" or "wrong" wasn't that funny tho? they prove themselves.......weird.
