    It honestly doesn't matter my friend really needs a just a general look on the tribes there trying to find themselves and think that the native americans beliefs would help, i really have very little knowledg of the subject i never bothered with it.

    Try The Encyclopedia of Native American Religions: An Introduction. It's factual and basic which sounds like what he might need now. Later on he may want to go into more detail but, if he is just trying to find himself this might be the shallow water to test.

    Interesting i have a bit of Blackfoot(or Siksika) as well, plus English, and Irish from my mothers side, and German from my fathers side. I have indian feet too; mid section touches ground. when i was a kid it was hard to shop for shoes though they don't seem to put the hump in them any more. I have never met any of my native relatives. my great grandmothers tryst with a native American is where my indian part comes from. the rest goes much further back.
