    That's funny OP my mom is also Columbian, she came over to the US at 13 or something. I mostly understand Spanish but I can speak broken sentences and such. She's pretty much full-blooded Columbiana which makes me half-columbian in heritage.

    My dad's side on the other hand is a bit more americanized. My grandfather is German, I think his (my grandfather's) father or the one before that was the one who came to America. My grandmother is Irish ancestry from I dont know how far back. But I mean both are pretty much American, though.



    What do non-Americans even say about their ancestry? I mean Yakamaru has viking heritage but what else do they say? That's always something Ive been curious about since America is a mixing pot people have heritage from this and this and that do non-Americans talk about ethnic heritage like Americans do?

    I've had quite a bit of exposure to Colombian culture throughout my life. I even had the opportunity to fly down there for a vacation 10 years ago, which was way cool. I really need to improve on my Spanish, though. I'm pretty good at reading it, but my Spanish vocabulary is lacking and I only somewhat understand spoken Spanish.

    Having pure viking heritage is pretty badass, in and of itself, though.

    Basically every ethnic minority in Slovakia. I think it's endearing how so many cultures have come together and mixed over time while maintaining their cultural identities.

    Irish on my father's side, German on my mother's side. The Irish side of my family has been living within current Canadian borders since as far back as the American Revolution, and the German side is Mennonite of the non-Amish sort, with a bit of Dutch.

    Kind of embarrassing, really. But that was over 200 years ago, so... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    200 years isn't that long ago in the grand scheme of things, also my guess is the Congo or the Māori.



    As for my self I'am boring 75% French 25% Irish. Although strangely unlike the rest of my family, I have a hard time with speaking French and catch my self occasionally drifting into an Irish accent.

    English, Irish, Scottish, Dutch, and Cherokee. I forget who came in where, but apparently the Celtic part is pretty strong because sometimes I get asked if I'm first generation Irish or Scottish. And oh so many complaints about how stubborn I am.

    My mom's side were Mormons so they were good at digging up records. They were able to trace back to 16th century Germany.
