Default Mistaken Nationality? xD

See, I am as American as you can get. I have mainly European and Native American ancestors, but I look more like a Native American. xD

SEVERAL TIMES THROUGHOUT MY LIFE -- especially in the past few years -- people mistake me for a Native American. xDD
Not that there's anything wrong with it, because I think Native Americans are beautiful people, it just confuses me sometimes. xD

Like one time, a national pow wow was going on around where I live, and at the local Wal-Mart, workers who'd seen me in there several times a week were asking me, my mom, and my little sister if we were with the pow wow. xD
Other times include; in a Cracker Barrel, this woman asked my mom if me and my sister were half Native American; when my family went to the Cherokee Reservation, the people would look at us like they knew us, etc. xDDD

I was just wondering if anyone else has had similar situations happen to them. xD

Yup, I'm not exactly purely American, I'm partly Filipino .. if you guys know what that is - its one of the countries near Japan, Taiwan, etc.
My former best friend mistakenly thought I was Mexican. xD
My other friend thought I was Japanese.
Others thought I was Asian, which I partly am.
The rest thought I was pure American which I have no idea how they got those results since I look nothing .. well mostly I don't look like a American. xD
