Great article on why you might not find that Native American DNA you were told you had: http://www.rootsandrecombinantdna.com/2015/03/native-american-dna-is-just-not-that.html

Redbone/Lumbee/Brass Ankles and other mixed Native people: http://redbonenation.com/

Melungeons*:  http://historical-melungeons.com/    https://the-melungeons.blogspot.com/   Please be aware, the concept of Melungeon, Malangu, Tri-Racial or Mixed Indians is a very volatile topic, and there are some theories out there that DO NOT hold water-please read other sites with care. Many people’s theories are “just” theories. Good rule of thumb, if someone is more interested in selling books than the research, that’s a possible red flag.
