Ask The Eye Cher And Cher Alike

April 3, 2014

Dear Eye View
I recently got my genetic profile done by 23andMe, and was a bit shocked to discover I had no Native American blood. I’m just a plain old 100-percent European mutt. My entire life my mother has prided herself that she had Native American heritage from her grandmother, and I’m trying to decide whether to broach the subject with her that it’s just not true. Coupled with the resurgence in the debates centering around a certain Washington football team, I’ve seen an uptick in my family of pride and hurt feelings as of late, and wonder if it would be something that needs to be brought up.

Dear GTN

I understand your concern. Best not to share this information. You know a  lie said enough times eventually becomes true.

Hope this helps
