    Not you again. Can't you do your own historical research? The Plains Apache were known to move all through the Great Plains, which includes the Llano Estacado, the Panhandle, Edwards Plateau, Toyah Basin, and the Llano Uplift in Texas--my great-great grandfather spoke of the Mexican government's bounty on the scalps/ears of the Apache people in 1835 to my great grandmother. It really doesn't matter what you think or say--my story, the stories my great-grandmother told me, are not going to change.

    I'd really appreciate it if you'd just climb down from my family tree and stick to your own business. You may not have noticed, but I kind of go out of my way not to interact with you. I find you to be thoroughly unpleasant and sanctimonious as hell.

    My great grandmother was fully Plains Apache. My great grandfather was half, but he died before I was 5, so I don't know what band he identified with. My grandmother, therefore was about 3/4--she did not self identify with any band and tended not to talk about her heritage, unlike my great-grandmother who told me numerous stories of her father's life and his people's woes with the Spanish and Mexicans. Most of the relatives left Texas and went to Oklahoma. My great great grandfather did not. I said my great grandmother because she is the only person in my life who identified with a particular band of Apache.

    My great grandmother was Plains Apache--those erroneously identified in the past as the Kiowa Apache. My relatives currently live around Cache Creek in Oklahoma.

    What ever floats your boat.

    Personally, I identify as a 100% American mutt, period. That doesn't mean I ever dismiss the struggles my ancestors endured, especially my Apache and Scottish ancestors. But, I wasn't born in Norway nor Scotland, nor could I possibly identify as Native American even with a good dye job. I am an American. Nothing more, nothing less.

    Obviously my Nordic/Scot ancestry which is 3/4 of my genetic make-up overwhelms my Apache ancestry which is only 1/4 of my genetic make-up. However, when I used to bemoan my lack of "NDN-ness" to my great grandmother, she would tell me that the evidence was in my cheekbones. To this day, I don't see it--but genes don't lie--they merely hide behind other genes.

    Thanks for the pic...I think.
