White grandchild adoptive Native American grandparents

Charlie Cook,
Sacramento, CA.

My dad was born from a White Russian and American couple. At 6 days old, he was placed into the wonderful home of my grandparents, one of the Cherokee tribe and one of the Mohawk tribe. Race doesn’t define you, your history, culture, and family help you grow into the person you are. I may be “white” based on the way I look, but my family is Native American and we could not be more proud.
