Janet said, "I will not tolerate accusations and falsehoods."
I will also not tolerate accusations and falsehoods. That is precisely why I piont out the erroneous and dubious misinformation that flows out of MHS and its internet boards and sites. Its clear that objectivity has been lost, dander or no dander.
It is interesting that I am on moderation and yet, Janet, you posted my response and then "put me on notice" because your personal dander got up. Perhaps your dander got up because the truth is out there and can not be denied any longer.
Oh, and by the way, personal emails are like letters. Once you send them they become the property of the reciever whom can do with them what they like. So by all means anyone on this list that has emails and have the internal foritude enough to expose the shame going on please, step up, take the initiative and let loose the truth telling for once.

Scott; I'm sure I do not know where you got the idea that the MHS opposes
Native Americans, NA DNA, or any of the things you are saying all over the
Internet. You can read the List rules for this list and the articles being
written by the people you accuse and see that this is not true.

There is not another historical or genealogical group anywhere, to my
knowledge, where such bickering occurs.

If there is a personalty conflict it is entirely on your part. I will not
tolerate accusations and falsehoods.

You are on notice.

And if anyone posts emails from another list or private emails that person
will be placed on moderation or unsubbed. This is not secrecy. This is
respect for other people's privacy that what they post on a closed list or a
private email will remain there.

The thing about secrets is that they have a way of popping up to the surface
when you least expect or want them too. Kathy, by all means, please do share
those emails or paraphrase and name names. The only way to prove a thing is
to show the evidence of a thing. Maybe if the MHS spent more time
understanding the facts and the history of our people then they may just
begin to rid themselves of ignorance.

No one that has identified with their Native American heritage has ever said
they didn't have other admixtures (i.e. African/European/etc.). That is a
red herring to distract from the realities of our people. For better or
worse we are who we are and no amount of DNA misconception or misinformation
will change this fundamental fact. If the MHS wants everyone to believe they
are Euro/African bi-racials it will not work because there are too many
historical reports both in courts and in government reports that refute it.
