Iam white and I have to say I’m sorry for what my relatives did to the Native Americans. I have done a great deal of research as to the promises made to the Native Americans and frankly it makes me sick. It makes me wish I was a Native because I feel I could not have controlled my anger.

Oh God Bless you, and you need no forgiveness as I hold the Federal and State Government responsible and those that stood with the Government's heartless way's.

It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

According to my mother, we have Chippewa blood in us. I suppose that is where I get my darker skin tone from. I wish I knew more about these indians. I wish I knew who my grandma was too.

As far back as I can remember in first grade we were called In dian, or red man there was no people from india until early 80s , I moved back and I asked a couple running a motel they told me from india I'm quisitive (oops) what kind of people, you blood,they said they are India yes but like me I am native people's Indians,they told me no not same the government pays them 1000$mth give van and motel and more India people coming over and they at that time and into probably 205-2010 didn't like it that others that didn't know the difference would ask what reservations they from. But I still will catch myself saying oh my in dian ways as the white people are the ones ever said Indian to us and growing up far from our ancestors our family our land we are proud to be people of the land and to me Indian, native american,white mans word's still, but I have to be honest with you, myself, I am still kinda partial to Indian,they are from india and have no indian ways maybe, I sorry not trying to be mean or rude but I don't know,20yrs ago everyone proud to be called Indian then once again white man and those like them said ya their native american well to me American is white and native to this land until they take more land and move us again and/or kill us with the diseases, and rename the people of the land again, and ya I have no friends,Be Safe & Happy

I didn't know much about his side but I'm trying, Learning about his dad Dennis Poni Cappo SR, his father James Kakenowash & mother Rose Poni Cappo, who James was SON OF KAKENOWASH AND NEONKAPANET. I'm just trying to get to know who my family is since I know all of my mom's side from Spirit Lake.
