I can't tell you how many times I have contact with fake Indians, searching for that non-existant connection to the Cherokee tribe, and when their story doesn't add up, they go away disappointed. Most, however, neaver really go away. They just adjust their story to match the new information. In this instance its denial. That's ok, whether she contacted me or not, she's not really a Cherokee. And no collaborator Indian from some distant northern tribe has the right to tell us Cherokees who we are or who is one of us.
