(56) OCTOBER 10, 2009
I AM PART CHEROKEE INDIAN BUT
I HAVE ONLY BEEN AROUND MY
IMMEDIATE FAMILY.  I AM NOW A
MEMBER OF THE ECHOTA TRIBE
OF ALABAMA.  SO,  NATURALLY I
WANT TO FIND MY HERITAGE.  I
WANTED TO GO TO THIS
AMERICAN INDIAN HERITAGE
FESTIVAL.  I WANTED TO BE
AROUND INDIANS.  MY
EXCITEMENT LEVEL WAS AT
100%. EVEN AS WE WALKED TO
THE FESTIVITIES, WHAT I WAS
EXPECTING WAS NOT THERE.  WE
SAW ONE LITTLE LADY WHO EVEN
REMOTELY LOOKED INDIAN.  SHE
TOLD ME SHE WAS CHOCTAW. I
AM 6% CHOCTAW INDIAN.  SHE
MAY HAVE BEEN IN HER MID-
EIGHTIES.  SHE WAS SELLING
INDIAN NECKLACES.  ALSO, THERE
WERE INDIANS IN THE DANCE.  
SURELY THERE WAS MORE INDIAN
BLOOD THERE THAN WHAT I KNEW
ABOUT.  THEN ON THE WAY HOME,
I REALIZED THAT I AM 14%. SO,
TRUE FULL-BLOODED INDIANS AT
SOMETHING LIKE THIS MIGHT BE
RARE, NOW DAYS,  ANYWAY
PROBABLY SOME FULL BLOODED
INDIANS WOULD BE LIVING ON THE
RESERVATIONS.  THE TRIP WAS A
GOOD ONE.  THE PEOPLE WE WERE
AROUND WERE VERY NICE.  THEIR
WAS A YOUNG WOMAN THERE WITH
HER CHILDREN WHO LOOKED INDIAN.
SHE EXPLAINED TO US WHAT THE
MOUNDS WERE.  THOSE HIGHER UP
IN STANDING IN THE TRIBE HAD THEIR
HOME BUILT ON A MOUND.  THE CHIEF
WOULD HAVE HIS HOME ON THE
HIGHEST MOUND.  THEY HAD STORY
TELLING HERE AND WE LISTENED TO
A STORY ABOUT THE EAGLE. AND THE
RABBIT.  WE ATE A VERY GOOD HOT
DOG WHILE THERE WE WERE NOT TO
HUNGRY BECAUSE WE HAD A BIG
BREAKFAST.. THEY HAD WATER ON
THE LAND AND WALKING TRAILS.  THE
MUSEUM WAS CLOSED FOR
RENOVATION.  WE ALSO WATCHED A
YOUNG MAN MAKING ARROW HEADS
WHICH WAS VERY FUN TO WATCH. 
ALSO, THERE WAS BASKET WEAVING
BEING DONE.  WE ENJOYED WATCHING
AND LISTENING TO THE MAN WITH HIS
FALCONS.  SORRY TO SAY, EVEN
THOUGH,  IT WAS VERY INTERESTING. 
AGAIN, WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR WAS
NOT THERE.  I WILL SEE.  HUBBIES
INTEREST SURPRISED ME!  WE WILL BE
GOING TO MY TRIBES POWWOW.  WILL
I FIND WHAT I AM SEARCHING FOR
THERE?  I DO NOT KNOW  .
