    on the part of those who reject their family heritage to pass as a white person. I feel sorry for how much they lose to gain so little.

    My sister married a white man and had twins with him before they parted. The girl is blond and blue eyed while the boy is dark skinned and dark eyed. In other words my niece looks white but she grew up being Indian and as far as I know she has never thought of herself any other way. She participates fully in Indian ways and religion. She married a Ponca man and they have beautiful brown kids.

    In my comment above I neglected to mention our language which is so integral to our way of life too. It's another thing which binds us together as Ponca.

    America could have chosen to be the worlds doctor, or grocer. We choose instead to be her policeman. pity
