my heritage

I am Irish and German. I like to joke about the fact that I am a descendant to the Nazi's even though I have no idea. This is because one of my friends is Jewish. Sick joke, I know. I am very proud of where I came from. I am also 1/8 Sioux. I also joke about this too. I look nothing like any native american I have ever seen. My grandma, who is 1/2 sioux is visibly sioux, by her hair. I just tell people that I didn't get any of the good traits. I have to say, even though I know my heritage, I don't identify myself by it, or by my writing. I could use it to my advantage I suppose, but overall I am not associated with a Tribe since my grandmother was adopted, and I don't have one of those strong ethnic familes.
