"I just felt I had to comment on your website. It is well constructed and very informative and combines information on different Native American organizations, news, and issues. I want to say wado for all the work you are doing to keep us all more informed. I hope we can all continue to grow closer and stand united as Native Americans. To honor and respect the sometimes different ways we, as different nations, do things. To live together in peace as 1 red race we first must learn to understand and show each other respect. Wado again for the website and I will be visiting on a regular basis for the information you post. I know the Creator is smiling and is pleased with the work you do."

"This is wonderful, so glad to see ORNAIC pictures shown, and also to be able to learn about the other groups that are so close by. The more we learn about each other, the easier it is to work together to share to make the Native American culture known.  Thanks so much."

"At this time it is of great need for us to come together as one PEOPLES. And your site reflects this. It gives all of us a chance to explore each other.
Wado, for all you have done.

“I love your web site.  I am not of The People, not that I know of at least.  But I admire your values and strength and have forever been interested in Native American life, even as a small child.  I love to read stories, and see the beautiful pictures of your ancestry.   Keep up the fine work of keeping your heritage alive and keeping everyone informed. 
Blessings to everyone.”

“I just wanted to say Thank You for the coverage of the "Voyage of Native American Awareness."  As I am out of touch with Frank and Penny Cook, at least you are letting me know what is going on with them and the voyage, and how things are going.  I know Frank didn't want to have to take a break, but his health is not what it used to be, as he has had a very rough year so far.
 It is an honorable thing these men are doing, and I wish there were more people involved in this.  My hopes are this could be a yearly thing, gaining more and more people that are willing to participate, instead of being a bystander, and wishing.  There are too many people today, that are not in touch or interested in their heritage, and up until a few years ago, I was one of those people.  Mom and Dad are very proud of their heritage, as am I, and they enjoy participating in the Native American celebrations that are held, and I hope they are able to continue that for years to come.
Again, Thank You,”

"I was pleased and honored to be asked to link with your excellent web site. Being from the Great Plains/ Colorado Mountains, I am not aware enough of the Eastern peoples and I enjoyed checking into several of the links you so thoughtfully provide. Very informative and interesting! I admire the job you are doing and I will be pleased to be included. My interest in mixed-blood women is of long-standing, and I appreciated the chance to celebrate the lives of a few of these accomplished women in my book, Walking in Two Worlds; Mixed-Blood Indian Women Seeking Their Path. I look forward to hearing more about what's going on in your neighborhood."

"I am writing to again thank you and your staff for the hard work you have put into this website over the past year. Not only do you post much, much information for the Native American communities but you also attend most of them and take pictures for posting. The service you do for our communities is outstanding and we are honored that you post material for us. If one would take the time, there is so much that can be learned simply by using the links you provide to the many different Native American sites. All of you there are doing a terrific job and you have a great website. We thank you again and want you to know the work you do is very much appreciated."

"O si yo,
I came upon your web site online while researching on Facebook, i keep many of my native contacts there. I am Night Wolf and hold the position of Principle Chief of The Woodland Band of Cherokee Indians. I am a master herbalist and story teller. I sing traditional Cherokee and have family from the London Corbin area and can show ancient Villages of The Cherokee in south east Ky. I live in Knoxville and teach Cherokee History, crafts, CDIB research, and work to preserve the language. We are seeking other groups from which to get to know. We are not Federally Recognized however will persue it at a later date as we have many CDIB Cherokee and a History of published accounts and dealings predating the civil war. I like your site and would love to speak sometime. The Woodland band numbers 15268 at present and we intend to relight the sacred fire of legend. We are a free group and seek no fees of members only community and are willing to seek out new friends and allies. We see the Cherokee nation seeks to isolate you as well as they have many in the past i can explain why, and how it is damaging to our culture. Attached is a file for you to see of recent Cherokee National documents ones we feel are unjust as no other race demands a card to be whom you are, no card to be black or Latino. I stand to end this practice and will openly stand my ground for all of our rights both legal and moral. We will have a solution of those Cherokee whom were not on the rolls and those cast aside for foolish reasons. If a person has a drop of blood they belong! I am 65 percent but look more white than rest of my family but i am CDIB card carrier and not part of one of the 3 fed tribes and we do not seek to join them , in fact we think the people will come with us in our march to reclaim our pride.

"Anii, Wahiya!
Thank you for the wonderful pictures and information you display on this website. My daughters and I have met you at several Pow Wows in Kentucky. A couple of which were because you told us about them. We are members of the Sault Ste Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians in Northern Michigan.
You have helped us feel at home in Kentucky.
