Is Cher Bono Native American?

That depends on what you define as a Native American. Cher Bono's mother was from Arkansas and claims some level of Cherokee decent, although she nor her mother are registered tribal members of any Cherokee Tribe.
All I know is that at least she used to claim she was half American Indian and she even had the looks and her other hit song "Half-Breed" to prove it .. hehe
Actually, she has never claimed to be "half" Native American, like the song says, because it's just a song. But some accounts have her being about 4% Cherokee. That is why she should change her name to Cher "Okee".
