How does one prove that they are a descendent of Wapasha I,II or.....

 

   I am a descendent of Basil LaRock,LaRocque, LaRoc (or however you want to spell it) and Catherine Brunette daughter of Jean Baptiste Brunette (Jr?) and Catherine Gauthier.  This seems to be where the problem develops.  Catherine is the daughter of Charles Gauthier and the "unknown Sioux Panis Slave"  Can anyone really prove they are a descendent when all you have to go on is "unknown Sioux Panis Slave"?

   I wouldn't even know where to staart.  What to do????  Where to start???  Any help???

I have just a bit of my tree on WikiTrees, so excuse the FamilySearch link but it is quite a bit more extensive. We're probably about 12th cousins.

https://familysearch.org/tree/person/9HX1-16T/details <-- Charlotte Catherine Gautier, b. 1755-?

There are no sources there for Catherine (I'm on WikiTrees trying to prove connections out), but there are for her alleged mother, Madalaine Pascal Chevalier, who doesn't seem to be Sioux at a glance. I've only glanced. Maybe there is something legitimate in the sources in this area for you to look at? 

I've supposedly got native heritage from my LaRocque grandmother, who seems connected to almost 100% French people, and can't find it to save my life, so I can relate presuming you are trying to prove similar.
