ANOTHER Churchill update
Here's the part that somehow got misreported:
"Is he an Indian? We really care. We're trying to protect the rights of Indians to divine for themselves, say this circle of flies in the form of white reporters circling a manure pile like it's of all consequential importance. Cut to the chase on that."
Okay... He later claims he's less than a quarter Indian so he couldn't get full citizenship in his tribe. Except he has NO Indian blood, according to Indians.
This first link http://www.indiancountry.com/content.cfm?id=1096410335 provides proof of a negative. Specifically proof that Churchill is NOT Native American.
Harjo: Why Native identity matters: A cautionary tale
“As Churchill has lurched through Indian identities, he has not found a single Native relative or ancestor. He is descended from a long line of Churchills that Hank Adams has traced back to the Revolutionary War and
Adams traced Churchill's ancestors on both sides of his family, finding all white people, including documented slave owners and at least one spy, but zero Indians.” (emphasis mine)So it comes down to who you trust. Churchill or Adams.
