Sharing knowledge this Native American Heritage Month

I am a proud tribal member of Doyon, one of the 12 Alaska Native regional corporations. Unlike the “lower 48” states, Alaskan Native tribes are organized as incorporated entities. My family has lived and fished in Alaska for generations; we have a fish camp on the Yukon River where we come together every summer to live off the land, with no running water, no electricity and no access except by boat. Growing up each summer on the Yukon has taught me the importance of knowledge sharing—passing tra...

"Cherokee Nation responds to Senator Warren’s DNA test."

From the Cherokee Nation website:"A DNA test is useless to determine tribal citizenship. Current DNA tests do not even distinguish whether a person’s ancestors were indigenous to North or South America," Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr. said. "Sovereign tribal nations set their own legal requirements for citizenship, and while DNA tests can be used to determine lineage, such as paternity to an individual, it is not evidence for tribal affiliation. Using a DNA test to lay claim...

Cherokee Secretary Of State: Warren, Trump DNA Fight ‘Not Useful’

Cherokee Nation secretary of state Chuck Hoskin Jr. said Monday that a DNA test does not mean much in the way of proving Native American ancestry, and that the back-and-forth between President Donald Trump and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) about her ancestry is “not particularly useful.” “It doesn’t drill down to whether a person has Cherokee ancestry, for example, or ancestry of any particular tribe. It’s useful to connect yourself with some lineage, determine paternity, but it doesn’t narrow...

A geneticist at Stanford University who analyzed Warren's DNA said he has "very high confidence" in the test results. DNA tests can't tell you anything about your ancestry with 100% certainty. Here's what they really do.  For years, Senator Elizabeth Warren has touted the fact that she's part Cherokee, expressing pride in her Native heritage. President Donald Trump has routin...
