Well _ i thought I said look Indian. I wasn't referring to what what the Cherokee look like today but I know they originally looked like other Indians did before they mixed with Europeans and Africans. I know that some of my ancestors that were Indian looked native peoples of this country and some did not or looked only part Indian.
To me many people calling themselves Indian in the southeast of the country don't look like the pure people that are called Souian and Algonquin-speakers out west.
