Of Lumbee descent?[edit]

Just curious as to whether anyone knows for definite given she's featured on the Lumbee page.. (Stuey 182 14:13, 12 July 2006 (UTC))

yes, her father is. --Colorfulharp233 03:31, 4 August 2006 (UTC)

This is wholly speculation. Her surname is Scottish and she has never traced her ancestry. In fact, the Lumbee are not even federally recognized as a tribe.

Her surname is Irish and may have nautical meanings. Sorry to burst your bubble, but not being approved by the government does not make you non-existant.JBDay 02:43, 5 July 2007 (UTC)
It is indeed all just speculative though. Don't forget that prior to the 19th century, people from other races were assimilated into American culture and given European or westernized names (e.g. - slaves were usually given the surname of their owners). Whilst I find it fascinating that somebody as "all American" as Locklear has mixed ancestry, unless there is absolutely unquestionable proof of it, it is best left off the article page.

The only way that we may be positive of how the Lumbee came about is through DNA research, which requires sufficient cooperation on the part of the ethnic group. I wish Heather a happy 50th birthday and hope that she may decide to use her celebrity status to shed light on an obscure chapter of North Carolina history and our nation's early origins.

Early Career[edit]

Memory is a fickle thing. If I recall correctly, waaaaay back in the mid to late-1970s the California Milk Advisory Board used an image of a bikini-clad Heather on billboards. I believe it was a pink bikini. Can anyone verify this early modeling job or chime in as remembering seeing one of those billboards? I also recall reading a print article long ago that mentioned Heather's appearance on that billboard. Wanting to sate cutiosity!!! Thanks.

I don't remember the billboards, but I don't doubt that there were some because she did a Milk commercial. She wasn't wearing a bikini, though; she wore one of those half shirts and a pair of shorts. I remember the Milk Advisory Board also posted a publicity still of her from the commercial on a placard in the milk section of many grocery stores. Oddly enough, it's difficult finding photos of/from the shoot. Then again, this was before anyone knew who she was...--Batman144 (talk) 21:56, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Main pic[edit]

Just passing through, and I noticed the main pic was from '93. Is there not a more recent pic?--Manfriday6 (talk) 05:03, 14 June 2013 (UTC)
