    African - Native Genealogy Homepage
       
    Researching Black Indian Genealogy of the Five Civilized Tribes It is known that many Africans intermarried with Native Americans. Less widely known is the fact that many Native Americans also owned African slaves, and fathered children with African slave women. In addition there were smaller numbers Free People of Color who lived in many of the nations and who also lived and married persons from the same nations, and whose descendants claim ancestry from the Oklahoma Black Indian people. As a result, thousands of Americans have African and Indian ancestry.

    Opata Tribes Research Project
      Mexico
    Mexico/Southwest This site was created to educate other's about the Opata Tribes from Northern Mexico and parts of the Southwestern United States. This is an ongoing project. These indigenous tribes occupied/occupy the central and northern region of Sonora, Mexico. Their decendants are scattered throughout northern Mexico and the Southwestern United States. The Opatas were still a distinct group in the early 1800s. Some fought with the troops of Governor Conde against the revolutionaries in the War for Independence, Battle of Piaxtla, Opata Revolt, Yaqui/Mayo Uprising, etc. Please write to me and let me know if you are a descendant. I would like to hear your stories.

    Strat43z's Tri Racial Genealogy Page
       
    A Question of Race. Native American, White, Black? These are the questions that this site tries to pursue. Tri Racial is a very limiting label, but when the predominant ancestry are these three origins, (given white is not an actual race), it can be a perplexing and almost impossible journey to research. Mix in the Melungeon, Roma and Gypsy mysteries, this only adds to the fuel that fires my passion to get to the truth, no matter how many answers I may find.

    Tan Americans of Natirah Ancestry
       
    The Tan community and the Natirah Heritage Council (NHC) are proud to announce that Natirah, a new ethnic term derived acronymically from Native Tan Inter-Racial American Humankind, was adopted in 1992 as a replacement designation for the outdated Mulatto term. Natirah, an "identity of reconstruction", is now the official designation for the ancestry of native hybrids of color, a people previously known as Mulattoes (Quadroons, Octoroons, Mestizoes and Triracials).
