Umm..maybe it's just me, but if your great grandmother was full-blooded, yet there is no mention of anyone else in your family being indian, then how do you "have a lot of indian blood"???? That is like 3 generations ago; thus, you are 1/8 indian (unless there's some part of your saga you forgot to mention). That's not really alot. Anyways, more power to ya, hope that's enough to get the money you are entitled to.
I think 1/8 could get $ but one has to have much proof. My great grandmother was Shawnee on Mom's. Mom side my great grandfather on Mom's dad side was black, can't prove any of it

If you have to hear the word of god, believe it, believe in and accept Jesus, be baptized and everything to get to heaven, did they all go to hell?
They never got the chance to make the choice to believe or not believe.
What do you guys think??
"But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked". Luke 12:48

So, No, they will be judged according to what they believed at the time they perished. However, if at the time they perished, they were being slaughtered by a "Christian" who knew better, then the one going to hell will be the "Christian". And, IF, the descendants of that "Christian" murdering and butchering "Indigenous" people, continue to demonstrate the same hatred and intolerance towards others, even their neighbors, then their descendants will join him in hell.

When we entered the new country we shot and killed many animals including deer ,bear, and scores of red skinned apes. The latter seemed to be particularly unintelligent probably ranking below our pigs and horses.

"we" Who?
"entered"? You forgot to add the word "illegally"
"new country"? Who or what are you again?
"we shot and killed many animals including deer, bear, and scores of red skinned apes" Precisely why you're joining your dead kin and most of your "folk heroes", like Davy Crockett in hell.

Well, are you registered with any Federally recognized Native American tribe in the U.S.? If not, then you might wanna check into it. Sounds like you're Native American, regardless of whether or not you're registered.

It seems that when men crossed the land bridge from Asia to North America they encountered what they considered to be primitive men that in short order were annihilated, thus It would seem that "Native Americans" killed all the first Native Americans. So maybe all red skinned men are bound for Hell for the murder of the original inhabitants of North America.

The History channel had an interesting show the other day. Archaeologist studying ancient Cherokee sites in North America noticed very similar etchings and carvings on the lodges. Along with similar building practices with the Hebrew people. They are now examining DNA of the Cherokee People with that of the ancient Hebrew. And they match.

We have it wrong the early Hebrews prior to going into Egypt lived in east Tennessee . Tobacco was found on an Egyptian mummy. It is becoming obvious that we have a lot to learn. This would explain why we have Mt. Carmel and Mt. Zion. Holston river or Jordan, who knows.
But it makes it hard to understand why all us Cherokee blooded east Tennesseans love to eat pork.

Also the Cherokee indians in this area didn't look like the other indians in the New World. The Cherokee in this area had fair skin and lighter colored hair. Along with different facial shape.

GOD created the Earth, NOT the Indians. The FIRST people were Adam & Eve. GOD created ALL mankind. The Indians didn't just sprout out of the ground.
Everyone will have a chance to accept God in their lifetime. No one will be left out. It's their choice if they will accept it or not.
If it weren't for forgiveness, then I guess we'd all be going to hell, right!? But I for one, thank God that He's a forgiving & merciful God. In His eyes there's no big sin, there's no little sin. It's all equal...SIN IS SIN. Plain & simple. It's just mans opinion & what they think's going to happen to so & so. Thank God mankind will NOT be the judge when it's said & done...GOD will.
Blasphemy is the ONLY sin that you will NOT be
so your saying god didn't make indians He only mad adam and eve. Well why are there Indians on the earth. And how can u be so sure Adam and eve are real have u seen them. You don't no they where proble native American we were on the earth longer.

Ok, so if what you are saying is that Adam and Eve were the first humans. I believe they had 3 children Cain, Able and Seth. Where did the boys find their wives? And where did the grandchildren of Adam and Eve find their spouses? Can anyone say incest?

Too bad that you have been around some who don't live as devoted as they should be, but that is an excuse..Just an excuse. I have seen things at Church that I couldn't believe,but it is not gonna make me give up.That is on them,not me and I am not perfect(no one is) that is why we repent but we are also to be more Christ-like every day which I also fail at but I am so glad for God's grace and forgiveness and yes,everyone will have a chance to hear the word and be saved. The Lord doesn't work that way.All ears will hear and I just hope that you change your mind for YOU. This world has gotten so filled with evil that it IS hard to find a truly good person.They are far and few between but if you expect Christians to be perfect just stop because there was only one man who lived without sin and walked among men.

I looked up your family tree - you were the sap.

It said your Indian name translates as Galloping Peckerhead.

American Indians believed in Reincarnation, and so do II. So, they would have been born again and again until they did hear the Bible Story.........No Problem, and No One left out.......

Look Up Christian Belief in Reincarnation......

My Father was more than 1/2 Creek Indian which he got from his Mother and Father. My Grandmother had Obsidian Black Eyes....My Father and his 4 bothers and one sister, All had either Dark, dark Brown eyes or Obsidian Black Eyes.......

I am somewhat amused by the number of people claiming Indian Blood, not that I doubt it.....,but because when my Father and his siblings were young, white people with Indian Blood were trying to hide it and keep it secret.......... Most of the Creek Indians who were not removed to Oklahoma, intermarried with white people..........
