I have an almost 2.5 year old adopted DD. She is 2/3rds Native American and I am beginning the process of registering her with her tribe. I would like to weave her history into her life and I’m not sure where to start. I’d love to talk to an adoptee who was adopted into a non-native home as I want to be able to give my daughter enough understanding so that as she grows up she can decide what cultural attributes are important to her.
As a side note, I did discuss the importance of her heritage with both her birth mother and father. Her birth mother didn’t want any special attention given to the matter. Her birth father, however, was very proud of his heritage and wanted this to be apart of my DD’s story. I have since lost all contact with the birth father, and only communicate with her birth mom through letters.
I’d love any feedback or direction. Thanks!
