So.....the Red-bone Redbone Blog I posted about yesterday has a lot of information if you have no idea what Redbones are.
I am also a member of the Four Winds Tribe, Louisiana Cherokee Confederacy. Their website is http://www.fourwindstribelcc.com/index.html
Before I got married my last name was Doyle. Doyle/Dial is on the list of surnames associated with Redbones and Melungeons.
