    Hello, from the western USA. I happen to be a "Amerindian" person.
    I'm what is known in the 21st century as an urban Indian. Not connected to my ancestors tribe since they were eliminated by a succeeding tribe.

    I meet at least 2 people each year claiming to be Native American. Over the past couple of decades, I've looked on claims such as these with skepticism.

    Other than that, my uncle married a woman who was a member of the Choctaw Tribe. She was a sweet woman & I miss her.

    I've never heard of Menzacan people, is that a Uto-Aztecan speaking group?

    Funny enough, Menzacsn is sarcasm, but ironically enough I do come from a UA group of pueblo tribes.

    Meh, the only people that question my identity are on the Internet. Everywhere else I'm either spat on for being a Mexican or white chicks throw themselves at me for the same. World is full of ignorant folks for sure.

    I have met only handful of "Real full native" americans. Majority I meet here are blonde blue eyed claiming their great great great grandmom was a Native american princess, just to get benefits.

    Lol I find this with SOME americans. They're all out to find native American dna. I always wondered and started a massive debate once under the title. Why do so many Americans claim Native American DNA - is it because they want benefits, is it because it makes them feel like the belong in America after the almost complete annihilation of the First People or is it simply because it's trendy and relevant?

    Needless to say, I never asked the question again lol
    One's homeland is not where you are born, but where all your attempts to escape, cease.
