Is the second one Kaylani Lei? The one next to her is obviously Miss Paris Hilton.

Who are the others?

Um, yes :oops: That's her. But except for Kaylani and Paris, I have no idea who they are. When I put this together, I simply googled for photos with the same skin tone (none of the images is photoshopped btw). In case of Kaylani, I searched by name since I've, um, seen a lot of her work and knew that she was a good match. Paris came up when I searched for "strong tan".

So Shania Twain has more right to call herself an american indian than this lady who has never lived in a native american culture ( and is only one 32nd native american) has.




If Elizabeth Warren grew up in Oklahoma she more or less did grow up in a Native American culture. Oklahoma has always had a major Indian presence and people who live there are most likely around Indian culture on a regular basis depending on where they live. There is not really much separation there between "Indian culture" and society in general in a large portion of Oklahoma, especially for the tribes like the Cherokee who don't live on a reservation. They are very much integrated within the established culture.

Although now that I've looked up more info, seems like she's from Oklahoma City, which I *believe* has much less of an Indian presence than the eastern half of the state. But still, you can't really be in Oklahoma and not have some kind of exposure to Indian culture, unless you are really trying to avoid it.

However, yeah, if she has no ancestor on the Dawes roll it does seem like she probably may not be Cherokee, or at least she may not be able to prove it...I will say though that during the turn of the century I don't think someone would put that they were Cherokee on any kind of legal document unless they really were, it is not like today, it was not considered good to be Indian.

I won't get into the whole problem with non-Indians saying who has the right to call themselves Indian. :evil:

That is not sufficient to make him a real Crow.

That does sound like an invitation for a Photoshop project.

Anyone?

That's a good one--very quick effort.

I had in mind the American crow: looks like this

Can you do one with the bird?

I don't mean to be rude but all of those pictures have been photoshopped, hence why they all have the same shade of grey background.

Just by tweaking the white balance in your camera you can make black look like white, your camera does it automatically everytime you take a picture so that it can adjust to different light temperatures.

If you put all of those people in the same room, at the same time and took one photo with all of them in you would see big differences in skin tone.

Nice try, but not real in way... :lol:

I wouldn't expect her to have Cherokee features since she is 97% not Cherokee if not 100%.

The point is, she isn't a minority and shouldn't receive the benefits of one. She listed herself as Native American until she got tenure at Harvard and they used her as an example of diversity when they were under fire for a lack of it. It's pretty clear she did this to advance her career.
