Re: “Some examples of Lumbee dialect

I'm looking for my grandmother's name on the trail of tears. She was put in a wagon on the trail of tears. Everything I see says Cherokee, but was told she was sioux and the bees was a hint my grandmother gave me. My grandmother appeared white, but my great grandmother appeared very native american and I have not had the opportunity to learn much because she was so young, just a baby on the trail and she only spoke of it once. I also only met my great-grandmother once and never met my great grandfather. I definitely heard the word onry a lot, mixed with go out yonder to do that! Any help would be appreciated - text me at 480-201-1745. I would like to know my culture and I would like people to realize that Cherokee Natives were not the only ones forced out. My grandmother's name is Pearlie Mae Overbee or (Over bee).
