Well, that would be cool. Since my family all have multiple links to the
Six Nations Rez, and all have at least 7% NA via DNAPrint (except me - I
have only 3% - drat, one generation "too late"). Every time I see a
neighbor show his tax card at the local hardware store I still cannot seem
to get why he saves 13% on every purchase and I have to cough up this amount
extra for the very same purchase. Here, however, status is not acquired
directly through a "blood quantum" but a definition established by the
Goverment in 1867 (modified a bit every so often and with more band
autonomy). So you are either in or you are out and some of us get the short
end of the stick but that is life - not always fair - but it is not a
perfect world (or someone would come up with a BGA test that one could
literally take to the bank).
