I've got quite a bit of my family's history, including 3 gggfathers that rode with the James and Younger boys during the Civil War.
Anyway, browsing around looking for info on Charle's Curtis, US VP and Kansas US Senator, I find out my wife is a descendant of the Osage Tribe Chief White Hair - Pawhuska in Osage - and Kaw Tribal Chief White Plume. Chief White Plume was descended from Chief White Hair.
White Hair was the chiel who helped Lewis & Clark across Kansas.
You can only be listed on one tribal role and my wife and son are listed as Kaw. Ain't got much blood there, but some.
Now what the hell kind of heritage is that for my son?
White trash on one side and Indian royalty on the other?????

There actually was a tribe of "white" American Indians. Yes, blonde hair, blue eyed indians. They were somewhere around the Mississippi/Louisanna area. I'd never heard about them, until a few years ago. Evitently they were wiped out by disease when the first explorers reached them.

ETA: My grandmother's madien name was Hattfield, so if any of you McCoy's want to say anything, you might watch out!

The Mandans were a blonde and blue eyed Indian tribe. Most likely interbred with Vikings. They were wiped out by small pox and cholera on the upper regions of the Missouri River in the early 1830s.

Hmmmmm! In my neck of the woods WHITE TRASH is a sign of pride! That is where we count our wealth by the number of cars parked in the yard. My richest relative - the one I helped take the tires off of his new home last summer - is so rich he doesn't know for sure how many cars he has in his yard. The old tight bastard won't go buy a new goat so the grass has gotten up high and you can't count the cars no more. And the dogs have got stayin' on the porch all the time so getting in and out of his house is tricky.
I keep telling him he has got a fortune in aluminum beer cans out there in the grass. I ain't spendin' $25 to get him a goat so he can find 'em. He shot his last billy goat cuz he got drunk and got tired of watching it trying to breed his favorite coon hound!
Yep, I wear the label of white trash with pride! I am ROYAL white trash, spelled with a capital B. Like in BUBBA!

damn! you think I'm joking bout the shirt and pants, if I had a cam I'd shoot a pic and post it, gotta have get both hemmed up cause I'd be embarrassed to wear'em like they are in public, I'd have to fold the sleave and pant leg up john wayne style just to use my hand and keep from steping on the pants cuff, and ya'll know how much I hate john wayne.

I done been there and passed that lowly rank in my late 20s, ACMan!
I had the game ranger tailing me, looking to bust me, for several years.
He once told several people he was gonna pop me for sure. Of course, when I was told about it, I told him to look me up anytime he wanted - had a new 4x4 truck that he could check anytime he wanted. Told him I was gonna get loud pipes on the truck just so he know I was coming.
He never did mess with me after that of course. He stills likes to talk about me for shit that happened almost 25 years ago but he won't bring it up in front of me!
That makes me REALLY staunch white trash! If'n you ain't ever paid your bills by selling coyote skins, then you don't really qualify. Of course skins don't bring the $30 to $35 they did in the late 70s. Back in da good ol' days for us rednecks!
Hang in dere, ACman! One of dese days you'll get to where I was in my late 20's and early 30's -
a true blue red necked big time royal white trash bubba!
