9. For most nations, percentage of ancestry does not matter

My sister is currently trying to be registered as a member of her nation. She is (I believe) 1/4, but it would not matter if she was 1/32 or 1/64, as long as she can trace back to a single registered member. (My sister was adopted (so she does not have her original birth certificate), and even though she has found her parents and all of her siblings, she needs her mother to claim her as her child - which she is currently refusing to do.)

So - from the perspective of the nation of her ancestors, she would be eligible to be a member of the nation (or not), regardless of the portion of her ancestry that was Native American - and the claim that she is a native american equally true, regardless of how far removed she was from that ancestor.

Just noting that the fraction is not a reason to quesiton the legitimacy.
