Nice thread Blackbird...

On my mothers side of the family, her father has a lot of Inidain roots. I wish I had a picture of him I could post, when I get a hold of one, I will post it. He really looks like an Indian, so does his othe brothers and sisters.

Sister Astrologer,

I think the admixture of First Nation genes in the overall genetic composition of "Stolen African" people is a much under-discussed and misunderstood topic in our community. As someone fairly intimate with First Nation people and a devout lover of African culture, I always search for those things our people carry that distinguish us from continental Africans and the rest of the African diaspora.

I have extensive Indian roots from both my paternal and maternal sides. I honor and respect them as much as my African roots. I believe that in order for a tree to grow the roots must be watered and nurtured. Let's make our trunk as strong as possible by attending to our roots and recognizing their importance.

Oh yeah cher, I haven't forgot about the Creole Plantations thread - I tried to respond but I had some much to say and I was always dealing with outside distractions that my post was timed-out and never made it as a thread entry. I will post my treatment of that on that particular when time permits.
