In the mid 2000's two men, Don Greene and Noel Shultz, published a series of books called Shawnee Heritage. They apparently trolled the internet looking for Native American genealogy and complied their unsourced books on unsource internet junk. People fell for these books hook, line and sinker. Their crummy work is found all over the internet. For some reason they believe that all Indians seem to be related to Moytoy. Hence the name Moytoy on this profile.

I have been working with the Native American Project to try to clear out these bogus "Moytoy" profiles, so thanks for bring this one to my attention!
