Stories with Native Americans?

meekimoo

There's no tag under interracial for Native Americans so, I was wondering if anyone could recommend some stories with them [that don't involve time travel]?

To what extent are there any true blooded Native Americans any more?
I have a couple of favourite musicians who are mixed race(gorgeous girls who can fiddle with the best). Mary Simpson heads the list

It varies from tribe to tribe. The tribes from the US east coast tend to be worst off on that measure and improves as you move west.

The Carter Clan set of stories in the John Carter universe by Lazlo Zalezak feature Native Americans quite a bit, and a couple of later stories concentrate on that aspect. It is better to read from the start though, to help explain the 'how and why' of the involvement.

Dual Writer also brings them in as important characters in the Florida Friends series, though primarily in 'Chuck and Lisa' if I recall correctly.

Thanks ustourist and felsonz. I had read all the stories in the Carter Clan and Florida Friends.

Lazlo Zalezac did research an actual rite when he described the funeral of William's mentor but otherwise I have to wonder how close to reality those parts of the stories are.

Chateaubriand describes the death rites in his diary - quite different to that describes by Lazlo but very different parts of the country. Chateaubriand gives a lot of Sioux words but he was also amongst Huron and 'muscovites' at various times; he is vague about where the various "sauvage' researches took place. As an example, if a hunter dies during the hunt in winter his body is placed in the branches of a nearby tree until everyone has returned to the village.

The Blind Man in Gateway seems to have read Chateaubriand and taken some of his North American ideas

Nobody in any first world country is "true blooded" anymore. We all have a little "something else" in our ancestry besides what we appear to be on the outside.

There are very few Europeans or East Asians that are purebread as well. There was a post on Facebook the other day that told about a study that used DNA from residents of England and showed how much of their heritage was from other areas of Europe.

Surprise, surprise, surprise. The Brits were invaded by the Celts from France, the Romans, the Saxons, and the Angles who all settled down and stayed, then the Norsemen came wandering through quite a bit. Then the Normans - heck, just about everyone from Europe invaded and settled in what we now call England at some point., except maybe the Swiss didn't.

but the storming "Normans" were third generation Danish Viking marauders, rapists, murderers and the rest.
If anyone saw "A Bridge too Far" the Lord Lovat (

I'll grant you that there has been, in many cases, a lot of mixing. But all you have to do around here is drive anywhere from 15 minutes to two hours, and you'll find all the true blooded Native Americans you want.

There are something like 38 Indian nations with tribal headquarters here in Oklahoma.

And of course, there's also the Native Americans in Alaska, but they're more genetically related to Mongolians than the traditional American Indian that most people think of.

I'm Métis, originally from Alberta. I have seen little to no stories about them here and elsewhere, but I'm just looking for Native American stories on here in general. I don't know why there isn't a tag for them...?

@meekimoo

I have read a few where natives are featured as a portion of the story. As for the question of the tag my only idea would be that Laz hasn't thought of it yet and hasn't had enough requests for it. It wouldn't hurt to put in a request for that tag to be made available. But remember most of the stories available now will still not have the tag even if its added. Some like Earnest can and will go back and add or change the story tags as changes are made, but many either are not with us anymore or just don't make those changes.

If a new tags really should be on a story, send Lazeez an email via the webmaster link with the URL of the story and he'll investigate it, and will often add the new tag.

Thanks Ernest, that is good to know.

The writer, K Pelle's, name rings a bell but I can't recall why


K Pelle aka dotB

may help jog the memory of why the name is familiar - also an occasional contributor to the forum.

@Ernest Bywater

Thanks (I think) Ernest. I see DotB has nine stories here and I have a very long SOL reading list waiting already!!!!

Anyway now up to Chapter 12 and still very happy.

Thanks for the recommendations thus far. I should've specified earlier that I'm looking for exclusively erotic (much sex, some sex, etc.) stories—despite the great reads suggested here.

Interesting question...

I'm remembering couple of good stories about Native americans (or as we ignorant evil foreigners still are calling them - "Indians").

First is "Tom's adventures" from T-Rix.

Then, there is something from JRyter
- "The Man From Eagle Creek".

I think both of them are worth reading.
Are they good enough for you - that's the real question :)
