Hi back at you

I too am a descendant of Matoaca ( Poco's real name)She was Powhatan-Cherokee.

And according to my ten years of research, they all came from Ireland or Scotland. History does not stop there. It goes back further.

But Cherokee is passed down by the mother and the mother's clan.

I did not know.

Today I have my very own "Elder" whom answers my questions and guides me to further knowledge.

I quit a perfectly good job as Treatment Director to find who I really am. It surprised me. As a history Buff I soon leaarned that American History does not tell it how it was or is. Millions were killed.And then for survival of the Blood line, cousins married cousins.Hopi prophecy says the Cherokee were successful in saving half the blood line.

It is a blood line.

Check in your nane "Moody" .There is an important Native American writer named "Moody.'

When I began writing and researching, I found I have a tree full of Native Americans who each have some Scott =Irish

It is a fascinating story that is real.
