    And she looks like she just might have some Cherokee ancestry? Did you get her story?

    I am so glad there is recognition of this people. For the longest time, all there was, was this, Thanks to Paul Revere and the Raiders:
    They took the whole Cherokee nation
    Put us on this reservation
    Took away our ways of life
    The tomahawk and the bow and knife
    Took away our native tongue
    And taught their English to our young
    And all the beads we made by hand
    Are nowadays made in Japan
    Cherokee people, Cherokee tribe
    So proud to live, so proud to die
    They took the whole Indian nation
    Locked us on this reservation
    Though I wear a shirt and tie
    I'm still part redman deep inside
    Cherokee people, Cherokee tribe
    So proud to live, so proud to die
    But maybe someday when they learn
    Cherokee nation will return, will return,
    will return, will return, will return
    Hope you enjoyed this, Mark. The colors are so sweet. Next time, my friend, take the BLAD!!!!!! (Yeh, I'm gonna BUG YOU, now!!!)
