From Holly: You know, if you were truly a democrat and a liberal mix, you would have a declaration about how the family is now that much better for having Indian blood in it and how good it is that now your son can now be considered a true American since legally, now he can share in the first people’s (Anishinabe) which means “first man” or “original man”, lineage.  Once married to an Indian, he is considered a part of the tribe, a brother to my brother.
The Saginaw Valley Band of Chippewa Indians is part of the Chippewa clan of the Ojibwa tribe of the Algonquin Nation of the Anishinabe, hence, the first people, the original’s.  The Chippewa are also believed to be one of the bravest tribes of the Eastern Algonquin!  I just like that little fact so I threw it in!
I don’t see anything on your site about land reparations to the American Indian, truly a cause with speaking up about.  Why so remiss?  I guess you can’t cover all the issues facing Americans,  true Americans.  You can only do so much.  

The McGlynn: To Holly, so there!! And, do I get a share? How soon? Cash please! No wampum!!

Reparation for Indian tribes. Yes, it’s about time you dealt with this, McGlynn, and way, way beyond the time that we as a country should have dealt with America’s original sin.


Thank you Mary! I appreciate the clarity with which you have captured the gist of the issue. Truly, America’s “original sin”.


Thank you dad McGylnn! I knew you would address it once brought to your attention!
