I've been looking it up, and the reason I asked is because my great grandfather is this creole. I just found out today, kind of rubbing me the wrong way. I have no problem with Indians, I just always thought of myself as full black... Now I just feel 7/8 black.

My black features only show thanks to my grandparents and parents staying with same race. His features are not present, not since my grandmother. Still a bit hard to believe

You look part indian to me your nose etc. But the French doesnt seem apparent. There are many 1/2 to 1/4 indians darker than you and me.

Basically, a creole. ;-) In French 'creole' stands for French peeps who aren't born in Europe, & then it stayed only for French Americans & French peeps on the islands. ;-) Creole Indian (not Amerindian) is basically a mixed Indian born in French Americas or F.Caribbean, even African & Oceanian French islands. ;-D

Interesting, the reason I was asking is because my grandmother wasn't close to my grandfather like my GREAT grandmother was.
