New! Black Americans Claim Native American Heritage Poll
« on: July 12, 2019, 10:12:20 PM »
Kinpeople.com is conducting a new "Black Americans Claim Native American Heritage Poll." Researchers report that one out of every ten black Americans have Native American roots. One interviewer of former slaves reported that all the former slaves she questioned claimed Native American ancestry.Clearly, this is a topic warranting further research. Please participate in our poll and share your family's oral tradition about Native American heritage. You do not have to be a member of the forum to participate. Poll closes July 30, 2019, 11:59 pm. Poll results will be posted on forum and can be viewed by all.

Two forum members voted in our Native American heritage poll. One member claimed descent from the Blackfoot tribe.
