Help with identifying this that I found of my grandmothers….(native american)?

Question by Amie: Help with identifying this that I found of my grandmothers….(native american)?
Hello, I am tracing my Native American ancestry on my moms side of the family. I have a rich cherokee and choctaw ancestry from my dads side of the family who are all from Oklahoma. But I have heard [unconfirmed] that my grandmother was Native as well. She passed years ago….She was born in Oneida New York. …Anyway, I was going through some of her jewelry and I found this…

I looked stuff up and found out about a turtle clan of Mohawk natives within the Iroquois confederacy.

Can anyone please help me to identify this?

Thanks 🙂
Also, it’s pretty big. It takes up the palm of my hand..

Its simply a necklace of a turtle. there is no single representation used for clans. having this doesn’t mean your grandmother was native since anyone can purchase this and others like it. turtle clan is in all of the Iroquois nations as well.

the ONLY way to know if your grandmother was native is to find her name on the tribal rolls. if she was not enrolled, she wasn’t native. The same goes for all native nations. ALL natives are/were enrolled in one Nation or another.

What native american tribe has a line going down their face in Seattle Washington?

Question by kiki: What native american tribe has a line going down their face in Seattle Washington?
I met a girl w a line tattooed going down of her face on her right eye and she was native american from Seattle. People from her tribe also have it but I don’t know which tribe. And I haven’t seen her since then

Best answer:

Answer by Salish
She was full of SH*T. Probably some new-age creep.

I am a native american from the Suquamish Tribe. Chief Seattle came from us. And there are no tribes in our area that have face tattoos.

There are less than two million REAL native americans in the world. As in, those belonging to in-tact native american communities.

There are roughly 200,000,000 (two hundred million) people who CLAIM to be native american or “descended” from native americans. The vast majority of them are wrong, and less than 4% of them even have any native american ancestry.

When there are more liars and wish-full thinkers than the actual thing, people become severely confused. Next time a person claims to be native american, ask them what tribe they are enrolled in. If they do not know what enrolled means, they are not native.

Q&A: Many native American tribes run casinos now. Was gambling part of their culture(s) before white men arrived?

Question by Terry Banto: Many native American tribes run casinos now. Was gambling part of their culture(s) before white men arrived?
Allowing native Americans to run casinos is an indirect way to allow them to collect reparations, right? For all the mistreatment their ancestors had to endure, and the destruction of their way of life on the North American continent, by the white people? Is there possibly a better way to pay reparations? Or did native Americans always approve of gambling (with furs, jewelry, land, women….whatever) before Europeans suddenly turned their world upside down in the 17th century?

Best answer:

Answer by e w
Tobacco and marijuana was.

Running water, electricity, alcoholic beverages, venereal diseases, were not part of their culture, either.

Native American Neckband Redo?

Question by Timothy: Native American Neckband Redo?
I am painting two sculptures of a native American man and woman. They both have jewelry on but I cant find any decent resources for AUTHENTIC jewelry/ neck ornaments to use as reference. There’s a neckband on the man with a large round, slightly concave angle to it. What colors go there. Silver and turquoise are dominant in most other paintings but which goes where?

Best answer:

Answer by eldin
The ones you’ve seen were probably Navajo.
Navajo men tend to be excellent silversmiths (unsourced rumour, if you heard it from me, but I think it’s true).
In the U.S.American Southwest, turquoise is the most common stone to be considered semiprecious.
As for where it goes; the turquoise goes on the silver. Other than that it can be worn anywhere.

The colors and jewelry to use on the sculptures you’re painting, depends on the tribes they’re supposed to be from; probably also on the clans within those tribes, and their ranks within those tribes.

Who profits from the sale of Native American made jewelry and crafts?

Question by A. W: Who profits from the sale of Native American made jewelry and crafts?
I went to a Cherokee Nation festival in Pennsylvania recently and bought some jewelry from some Native vendors. There were some vendors who were — shall I just say, they didn’t seem to be indigenous Americans or any kind of person of color (but I could be wrong and they could have been full-blooded Lenape) — who were selling some gorgeous items at ridiculously high prices. They said their works came from the Southwest but their business was in Florida. I overheard them telling some other people of no-color that the proceeds go to some tribal something but my friend warned me that this vendor could be lying and to not believe it. They had some gorgeous pieces but I couldn’t afford any of them but I was also feeling some kind of way about these folk selling high-priced stuff at a pow-wow. If I were to purchase an expensive item, I would prefer to buy it directly from the Native artist him/herself.

Best answer:

Answer by mike1942f
Every possible pathway from artist to buyer can exist for such stuff. If it makes you feel better, when I was in Flagstaff at a native rodeo and festival, I was looking at turquoise and silver jewelry which was beautiful and WAY out of my price range. The sellers obviously knew the value of their stuff.

A Difference Between American Jewelry And European, African, or Egyptians Jewelry

Jewelry is a well-known word for all of us and it is the most basic form known by the human being, before he came to known about writing and speaking. All regions have their own art of making jewelry, which shows its culture and traditions.

The American jewelry is renowned for its own style and craft. Jewelry made and owned by America, causes a great effect on all over the world. Its jewelry reflects the image of its own social customs and craft work as well as its own style and trends, which spaced out it from Egyptian, European, or African jewelry.

In past, Americans used hardwoods, precious and semi-precious stones as well as some animal parts like teeth, bones, hide, vegetal fiber, to create a fine piece of art. From the very beginning, American jewelry had its own trademark and social impact on their excellent carved jewelry section. While Egyptians were use simple natural things like plant branches, beads, and solid stones..

They arranged these all by using a thread of flax or cow hair. European jewelry was rich in enamel work as well as gems with gold was an inimitable feature of it. American jewelry’s basic designs were quite different from European, Egyptian, or African jewelry at the same time.

.Now American jewelry has become very contemporary in style. Elizabeth James Perry, a Contemporary artist first created wampum necklaces, bracelets, earrings and belts from buck skin and milkweed fiber. Moreover, it was the starting for contemporary style American jewelry. North Americans mostly used shells, wood, turquoise, and soapstone to create their own style jewelry. Where as Egyptians, jewelry was mainly constituted of colored glass with precious stones and African jewelry was based on brass and bronze metal.

Mostly human figures were used as a basic design in jewelry. That’s how American jewelry is different from Egyptians, European, or African jewelry.

Domestic silver jewelry has its own impression over world wide, as it is both serviceable and a diverse marker of social status. Where as Egyptians has to imported silver from other countries. Their designs were similar to Phoenician jewelry. The history of American jewelry lights up international trade practices, although many artifacts were made in America whereas some were imported from abroad like coral, helmet conch shell, and diamonds.

During 19th century, Diamond jewelry became very popular in America and grew readily with increased demand of its diamond jewelry worldwide. Colored stones were also become in style along with diamond jewelry. American diamonds have been ruling worldwide over a half century because of its quality, value and experience. American diamonds are very much in style for brilliance and unrivaled quality. Africa is also very much famous name in diamond industry as it has a series of quality diamond mines. Egypt is also famous for its quality diamonds and its diamond jewelry has a unique quality as well.

At the end, it is very easy to come to know about the difference between American jewelry and European, Egyptian, or African jewelry.
