I'm not making fun of you either. There are many folks who believe exactly what you've espoused here and I just want you to see that other possibilities do exist and you shouldn't close your mind to alternate theories.

What is your specific 'tribal' heritage if you do not mind me asking?

A piece of irony here.

For the record: the 'Mexica' movement would actually welcome you.......apparently, one has to be no more than 1/2 American Indian to qualify.

My maternal grandmother was full-blooded Apache. My grandfather was about three-quarters.

Yes, I'm sure that the Mexica movement would welcome me. They are constantly seeking acceptance from Native Americans. However, there is no love lost between the Apache and those from south of the U.S./Mexico border. My great-grandmother used to tell me of how the Mexicans would pay other tribes and their own people two dollars a pair for the ears of our people. She also told me of her father raiding villages in what is now modern day Mexico for slaves and in retribution for their attacks against our people. I accept that the Mesoamerican Indians are indigenous to the North American continent, but to try to pass themselves of as indigenous to the land of the Nde is preposterous and insulting.

I guess then anybody living outside Ethiopia is illegal. Somebody give this guy a boat ticket. It'll get him close to home. He can walk the rest of the way or maybe call one of his native ancestors to come pick him up.

Pretty broad statement there, PL.....something like saying "All Whites are the same breed, from the top of Norway to the end of Sicily"....And that was a LOT less distance than the length of the Americas.
There was a LOT of difference between the stone-age Paiutes-- and the extremely primitive Onas and Yaghans (Cape Horn area), and the very sophisticated Aztecs---or the Incas..

The bigger point is, though, that any "hereditary rights" are usually cancelled out by OTHER hereditary rights. Almost every group has pushed others around---and has, itself, BEEN pushed around by others....The big difference is, NOWADAYS, we talk about it....
