"What is Blood?"
Blood is the red fluid that circulates in our blood vessels,( veins and arteries).
The main function of blood is to act as the body’s transport system, but it also has a major role in the body’s defense against infection.
Blood is a bodily fluid in animals that delivers necessary substances such as nutrients and oxygen to the cells and transports metabolic waste products away from those same cells.
My point being, how does one separate the blood of tribe to tribe or tribe to non tribe?"NOT!"
So, as my people still believe, it is always up to our 'Head Clan Mother' with the permission of our 'Shechaim Ohjieshan'.
Any other reason is to selfishly keep you out of a what is now called nation or reservation (Indian Prison)?
Known as Indian Casinos!
Remember, adoption was put into place centuries ago to help keep a tribe healthy and strong because of wars and disease?
Blood quantum laws or Indian blood laws is legislation enacted in the United States to define membership in Native American tribes or nations. "Blood quantum" refers to describing the degree of ancestry for an individual of a specific racial or ethnic group, for instance, 1/4 Omaha tribe.
Its use started in 1705 when Virginia adopted laws that limited colonial civil rights of Native Americans and persons of half or more Native American ancestry. The concept of blood quantum was not widely applied until the Indian Reorganization Act of 1934. The government used it to establish the individuals who could be recognized as Native American and be eligible for financial and other benefits under treaties that were made or sales of land.
Since that time, however, Native American nations have established their own rules for tribal membership, which vary among them. In some cases, individuals may qualify as tribal members, but not as American Indian for the purposes of certain federal benefits, which are still related to blood quantum. In the early 21st century some tribes have tightened their membership rules and excluded people who had previously been considered members.
