Native American


Legend has it that my Great Great Grandmother was a Blackfoot Indian. (I think.) I've been looking around online to see if that would qualify me as a minority and whether or not I could apply for scholarships as a Native American. (Turns out I'm pretty sure I can't. I have to have 1/4 Native American Blood Quantum) But in my search, I found this gorgeous photo on Wikipedia, and thought I'd let you all see it. I spent quite a while looking back and forth at the faces. Anyway, here it is. And here is the even larger version from Wikipedia.

Ok, I offended someone by this post. I want everyone to know that I was pretty much kidding when I said that I wanted to get a scholarship because I am 1/16th Native American. Sorry.

And I'm sorry about my previous comment, and I've deleted it as well as the reprimand (because the reprimand makes no sense without the offense.) I said that some of the people in the photo had large foreheads, because we Eleks all have enormous foreheads. I was making a joke about myself.

All that to say, sorry. Meant no harm.
