Hey. My late husband had a tiny bit of Blackfoot Indian in him. You could see it in his mother and father and relatives however they refused to admit their heritage. To the extent that his mother wanted nothing to do with her family as a result. My late husband was relentless in proving the family wrong to the extent that he did a family tree and researched only to conclude that he in fact was partially Blackfoot. Why the protest against being a part of the heritage is a mystery and we can only conclude that the family was or became racist against their own culture. My late husband embraced it. It's like the slave owner marrying a slave and having a child. I'm sure that angers the slaves since many were oppressed by the owners. My oldest son's heritage is just that but they embrace who they are and had absolutely no control over the past. The Spaniards and Mexicans need to do the same especially in a world where many are co-mingling.
