There are more than 5,000 West Virginians with Native American Indian bloodlines, full-blooded to a fraction, and as recently as 1994, it was against the law for any of them them to buy property. In order to do so, they had to list their nationality on forms as “black or other instead of Native American,” said Jennifer Penland, assistant professor of education and indigenous scholar at Shepherd University. The West Virginia Legislature passed a bill eliminating the rule in 1994, she said.
