That's garbage. No way an eighth blood equals a full blood. Stupid liberals.
Individual nations determine their own membership - dat sovereignty - so if a nation says 1/8 is a member, then they're a member.
That's still doesn't make it good policy. Under that policy a bunch of people with little Indian blood can decide that having little indian blood is enough to be a member and get the benefits of membership like federal funds and scholarships and casinos.
Yeah, well, I disagree entirely that Indian sovereign nations shouldn't have the ability that any other sovereign nation has to determine who is or isn't a member of that nation, but going any further than that is getting into a debate on the merits of AA, which is inappropriate here.
