Information for Adopted Native Americans
A Starting Place
Aaniin! Boo-shoo! Sekoh! Ta'n(i)si! Hello! There are many different ways to say HI in Indian Country.
I decided to set this site up so as to provide a starting place for information for Adopted Native Americans (known as Status Indians, here in Canada).
As an Adopted Native American, I am sure you can imagine how much more difficult it is to find out information about being an Indian. You are viewed; or I should say, I always felt viewed, as an outsider.
The changes in policy on travel to the United States has only brought the search for Native American crossing rights, into more focus.
I could hardly believe Native Americans with Criminal Records cannot be denied entry to the United States, under the J Treaty of 1794, provided you can prove 50% of your blood is Native American. It is my intension to collect this and many other rights here on this site.
As you read through this site, you will find that, as an Indian you do not necessarily need to register for a green card, or get a passport to enter the United States. That being said, getting one or both maybe helpful in cutting down delays at the border. Air travel will be difficult, if not impossible without one.
As it was hard to determine where I should start. I thought it best to at least begin with the basics:
1. How to determine if you are eligible to register as a Native American or Status Indian, and
2. Then how to go about getting the rest of the documentation.
3. Provide those Adopted Native American's with the information required to cross the border.
If you have any advice, comments, suggestions or questions on what can be, should be; or needs to be; on this site, please email your comments to email@example.com
