Re: LOUSIANA REDBONES

It's funny but the term "Redbones" in my Grandmom Pierce's neighborhood in Camden us to mean Black mixed with NDN. Now the young generation there uses it for a light skinned Black and forgot it's original meaning. I had to show this stuff to my cuzzens Tank and Dante to prove it's original meaning.


I don't have anger issues...just violent reactions to B.S.

Former Chief of the Ramapough, the late Ronald Van Dunk, said his father called him a real "Redbone," meaning "Indian," due to his hunting and trapping skills.  That's where he got his name, "Redbone."
