    Native Americans are the indigenous peoples within the territory that is now encompassed by the continental United States, including parts of Alaska down to their descendants in modern times. They comprise a large number of distinct tribes, states, and ethnic groups, many of which are still enduring as political communities. There is some controversy surrounding the names used to describe these peoples: they are also known as American Indians, Indians, Amerindians, Amerinds, or Indigenous, Aboriginal or Original Americans. In Canada they are known as First Nations.

    The U.S. states and several of the inhabited insular areas that are not part of the continental U.S. also contain indigenous groups. Some of these other indigenous peoples in the United States, including the Inuit, Yupik Eskimos, and Aleuts, are not always counted as Native Americans, although the US Census 2000 demographics listed "American Indian and Alaskan Native" collectively. Native Hawaiians (also known as Kanaka Māoli and Kanaka 'Oiwi) and various other Pacific Islander American peoples such as the Chamorros are also not considered Native American.

    Howdy and Halito. Herein I tell the tale of my family background.
    My mothers side of the family are Choctaw from s.w. of Gainesville, Florida. Her father migrated out to California where he met his future wife, a very mixed race woman. They had a passel of kids. Mom’s side of the family migrated to Oklahoma during the removals but soon went back to Florida and joined the Seminole.
    My fathers family were some of the earliest Cherokee migrants in Oklahoma. They went out before the Trail of Tears and didn’t get along well when there were more of their people settling in. They drifted up to Fort Kearney and Hung-Around-the-Fort for a few years and then hit the Oregon Trail and settled here while, not too imaginatively, changing their last name to Kearney then to Carney.
    In California my mothers huge family married into every race I know of excepting Australian Aborigines. My fathers family married into the local native tribe of Kalapooyas.
    I have been on Americas reservations, had friends who have grown up on a rez and visited but I am definitely an Urban Injunn. Nut as a good friend tells me, the forest is in the city.
    I trace my descent to the Mississippi band of Choctaw.

    Perhaps because I have made so many web pages and my older son is a computer systems engineer, I am aware that things happen online that can make your posted materials vanish. Servers go down and get reset, there are many other reasons that cannot be prevented. So I have learned to keep a copy of anything I post that I would like to put back if a server goes down. I am now replacing the comment I had here previously. Oh, yeah, and hey Zoopers, lets get rocking!

Dreaming, dreaming, life after life.
Status always foreward, never straight.
I pay no attention to the law and just try to behave myself.
