I bet a ton of you out there know where your ancestors came from right?
I do at least. I have German and Norweigan ancestors on my dad's side and Native American on my Moms.
I've been noticing a lot lately how many people really have an intense pride in what country their ancestors came from. I've noticed this is especially prevalent in those that are Irish and Italian.
It's not that I'm not proud of where my ancestors are from, but I've never really felt a huge connection with any of the countries or the tribe of my Native American heritage. Obviously I do want to go to Germany and Norway while I'm here, but that's about it.
In all honestly I identify more with the state I'm from. I'm a fiercly proud and loyal Oklahoman. Besides that I consider myself a Southern girl. I know it's up for debate whether Oklahoma is the Midwest or the South, but I at least consider us to be a Southern state. If any accent in the state has a twang..then I consider it to be Southern.
What do you identify with more? Your heritage? Your state? Your region? What are you reasons?
