Can I prove Native American heritage with dna test only?
 
My family has recently found out that my grandmother was 1/2 native american. However, I have no way to prove this as it was due to an unsubstantiated relationship of her mother's and was kept secret until my grandmother's death. Is there any way to get a CIB card with dna only, without knowing exact names and history of ancestors?

Remember that while DNA and standard genealogy may be useful and may yield the truth and may be all you want, unless you are a member of a tribe, you will be given little credibility as a Natrive American. In some cases 100% Native Americans have violated a federal law on crafts because they are not tribal members.

Your grandmothers spirit knows who you are. Listen to your ancestors the trees, animals, wind, and rain, you'll here your grandmother speaking in them.

Why don't you want a Eagle Feather? An Eagle Feather will show your heritage truthfully.

Science does not matter. A card is just another slice of dead tree. Cards were created by the government, not by natives.
