“How much are you?”
“I’m Native American and white. When people ask my ethnicity, I say I am Native (because it’s something I’m very proud of). I am a ‘city Indian,’ raised in Native culture, and am an enrolled member of my tribe.
Here is my list: How much Indian are you though? Why don’t you say you’re white, too? You don’t look Indian. What’s your Indian name? Do you know *insert random other Native American they know*? How much money do you get from the government?
And, of course, the classic response, ‘I’m Indian, too, my great grandmother was a full-blooded Cherokee princess. I don’t have any proof or anything, but it’s definitely true.'”
