Unlike the presentation of my paternal grandmother’s Mississippi Choctaw heritage video; whereas, I’d had the privilege of personally hearing from her about our Indian heritage. My maternal grandmother died when my mother was only 12 years old. Therefore, I wouldn’t have been able to write in defense of the naysayers on site, had I done a video of her Mississippi Choctaw heritage before now – I think.
Deciding to get a DNA test gave me an approach I favored to make a video for my maternal grandmother’s heritage. The company is called 23andMe. Either my DNA will show Native American heritage within a reasonable distance past (3to4 generations)or, I would not have a hit at all. However the test wouldn’t prove specifically Choctaw heritage.(my understanding, a showing of NA ancestry is not the same as East Asian & Native American ancestry hits)
Either result, I had decided to make the video. I just wasn’t going to defend against those who were never going to accept that Blacks and Indians laughed together – even after slavery – right there in bigotry infected Mississippi. And I would still continue to trust in my grandparent’s spoken historical heritage, however it had been passed on to me.
