    Not the best title but I see so many white looking people commercially crabbing at the Indian opener in Area 6 on July 9...... What makes an Indian an Indian according to the Feds or the state... Thanks ahead of time

    I have a friend that is 1/32 Native American and he gets all the benefits. His kids are 1/64th and they also receive benefits. What a fucking scam.

    I'm a proud Tlingit. Not sure about the other Nations, but the recognized % or quantum is 1/8. And it's a great title (question).... so if you're native, be proud. fuck the native haters.. :finger:

    Sun, So in your tribe 88% white and 12% Indian is a native.... Is that state or federal rule?
    I don't hate anybody.... I just have always been curious what the percentages were? Thanks Sun

    Adoption is a huge tribal issue as is marriage. If you have a commercial quality fishing vessel it is quite easy to marry into or get adopted to the tribe of your choice.

    That's an interesting angle... Do you then have to live on the reservation?

    Yes, just like most things, not much is universal.

    To be Native blood? No more then you have to live in Germany to be German.

    Well, you have to show proof of your ancestors such as roll numbers (indian ssn). My mom did it like 20 years ago and I do have my cdib (certificate degree of indian blood), but it doesn't do me any good out here. Back in texas as a kid we did get medical and dental free at the indian clinics and on occasion commodity products like a freakin block of american cheese and industrial peanut butter.

    Shit, your right, maybe it was velveeta, all I remember is it really sucked trying to cut that big ass block of cheese with a butter knife for grill cheese. One side would be paper thin and the other side of the bread would be one inch, try cooking that shit evenly. LOL
