I've been asked a question many times about my nationality.

"Are you Chinese or Korean?" I'm neither. I'm Native American, of the Navajo (Diné) tribe in Arizona. It's possible that if I took a DNA test, I might have some sort of bloodline tracing back to places in Asia. When I get a chance to take the test, I'll post the results. My mother tongue is Navajo (Diné). Navajo is a tonal language, with four separate tones of voice for pronouncing vowels: low, high, rising and falling. We don't have a traditional alphabet or use symbols. Mostly what people will read is a general romanization of our language. However, I was raised on both Diné and English. Over the years, I've learned some German and Spanish. These days, my focus has been on Korean, Chinese, and Japanese.

    @캣Cat The world is big. Many different groups of people. All I could say was, "Arizona." Part of me wanted to say "Central Korea" just for kicks... I'm totally kidding. It's fine though, not many people know much about my ethnic group.

    @Shinji Maybe some of the neighboring tribes are descendants? We have not just my tribe but many others that speak their own languages. It's pretty interesting.

    @하예지°周雨 yea but what kind of person can think that you could be from Korea?! 🤷‍♀️ When I’m out of Korea, I’m asked so many time ‘Are you from north korea or south?’. Mostly I ignored it but I often felt like saying ‘east’ or ‘west’ ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

    @하예지°周雨 probably yes, but it is also said that some people from Asia side went to the American continent through Bering Strait, so we would be all mixed, I guess 😂
