In my mid 50s, I have just discovered that I am Sioux. My father and his siblings were taken away in the 1920s / 30s and put into other homes. My father was adopted in Hutchinson, MN. He was born in 1930. He was able to find his parents, but I was also adopted so did not find out of this until after he passed. His mother was 100% Sioux, but I am not sure if his father was or not. My mother thinks that he was. There is no other DNA for testing other than my own. I do not care to have proof. I just would like to know more of my heritage. If I am 1/4 or 1/2 does not matter to me. I only started questioning my heritage after moving to Montana and having everyone ask me what tribe I was. I had always been told that my father was French, Polish, and Bohemian. I guess European was easier to place than "Indian". I do not believe that there is any chance of finding my actual ancesters.
I would like to know more about DNA testing, what it can tell me with just my own DNA, if it is worth the money.
I just happened upon this forum looking for information on the subject of one of James Ayers' pictures.
