I, too, have a great-great-grandmother who was a full-blooded Native American. I, too, was told this by my mother. I do not know anything about this woman - all I have is a photograph taken when she was a young girl, which is a mirror image of me, except for the black hair. I, too, have high cheekbones. HOWEVER, Professor Warren.... I have never thought of myself - or declared myself - as anything other than an American. Some people will do anything to get ahead in the world!!! If she is as innocent as she proclaims, why has she stopped identifying herself as Native American?? Pathetic!
