I think this can appear in several ways. One of my uncles had the
more "typical-looking" (i.e., Asian-looking) NA eyes; another uncle
(along with his sister, my late mother) had the rounder, but hooded
and "sleepy-looking" eyes like Elvis. Both my son and I inherited
the hooded and sleepy-looking version.....
Although she has never said it publicly that I'm aware of, I'm sure
the actress Sela Ward must be part Native American (perhaps a
descendant of Nancy Ward??) She resembles my late mother when she
(my mother) was a young woman......
