Carol....Another definition of the term "Black Dutch", especially in the South, it's how some people referred to themselves when they had noticable Indian blood in their veins, at a time when it wasn't "cool" to be Native American. Between the Indian removal even until after 1900, people could be forced to go to a reservation if they were proved to be Indian. There are other meanings for the term "Black Dutch", and they are also called "Black Irish".
