And there are conflicting stories in the family as to whether or not we have native blood. My mom's uncles told her, when she was a wild little girl running around and playing hard, that she got it from her grandmother, an "Indian Princess". At different times mom has told me she (a) believed them, (b) still believes them, and (c) is certain they made it up as a joke and it is not at all true. I can't get a straight answer out of any of the older generation and, sadly, most of them have passed. I think my last best hope is that DNA testing improves to the point where we can tell one way or the other.
