From what I have seen --- it seems to me that the matter
of whether or not a person (who is of a racially-admixed
lineage) would also be seen as also being an 'Amerindian'
---- varies from tribe to tribe (with some tribes requiring
no less than 1/4 Amerindian lineage and others allowing
as little as 1/16 or even 1/32 Amerindian lineage) and
---- may also be affected by whether or not the tribe
in their lineage has ever been federally-`recognized'.
Other factors may have some impact on this as well.
Hope that's helpful and that you have a great day.

Hello everyone. My name is Ceige and I have been a
member of this group for a long time and although
I have never posted on it, I like this group.
Anyway I have a question. I am a black American who has
some mixed lineage from past generations. My paternal
grandmother was half white and half black (her mother was
a black nigerian and her father was a white Englishman).
She married my paternal grandfather (a black man) and
had 7 children my father included. My father who is
3/4 black and 1/4 white married my mother who is black.
So what would that make me? Would this qualify as
being multigenerationally mixed? Just curious. Thanx
