The 25 Sexiest Women You Didn’t Know Are Native American

With Thanksgiving bearing down on us like an unmanned train full of volatile chemicals that only Denzel Washington and Chris Pine can stop, it’s time for us to reflect on those things for which we’re grateful. As you can probably tell from out Thanksgiving Poca-Hotness feature, Native American women top our list. Women like our very own Miss COED Sahar Khadjenoury. But, there’s a cornucopia of hot celebrities you didn’t know were Navajo…or Cherokee…or Sioux. Let us show you!

#25 – Shannon Elizabeth

Shannon’s a very hot vegetarian who made every guy’s memory bank with a mind blowing scene in American Pie then fell off the face of the earth only to strike it big in poker then waltz her way back into the national spotlight on Dancing With The Stars. Her mom’s Irish, English, German, and Cherokee.

#24 – Fergie

She’s hot, she’s not, hot, not, hot, not. Some say she’s a dude, others think she’s irresistible. The never-ending debate over Fergie will rage on until we meet our makers. Fergie’s maker added a dash of good ol’ Native American to the mix. We’re guessing that’s the part that lands her on hot lists.

#23 – Jennifer Tilly

Like fellow Native American Shannon Elizabeth, Jennifer’s a poker hottie whose same sex sex scene with Gina Gershon in Bound made our 10 Movies That Will Get You Laid list. You might’ve heard her seductive hiss when she voiced Bonnie, the forever pregnant wife of Joe on Family Guy. Her mom’s Irish and Native American…what is UP with that combo?!? Did we miss a Lord of the Rain Dance orgy or something?

#22 – Hunter Tylo

Born Deborah Jo Hunter in Fort Worth, Texas, Hunter is best known for her role on the soap opera The Bold and The Beautiful. She was cast in Melrose Place but was fired because she was pregnant and sued Aaron Spelling. Her mom’s of Cherokee descent. Man, those Cherokee women are super “friendly”, am I right all you Irish, Scottish, and German immigrants?

#21 – Kristen Chenoweth

This award-winning actress, singer, and best-selling author has appeared on Broadway in the play Wicked and on TV shows The West Wing, Pushing Daisies, and Glee. We highly suggest renting “Four Christmases” to see her play the sister of Reese Witherspoon’s character. She was born in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma as a result of Broken Rubber. Haha, we made up that last part about the malfunctioning contraceptive.

#20 – Malese Jow

Malese is a 19 year old actress-singer/songwriter best known for playing a fashionista on Nickelodeon’s Unfabulous and a teen vampire on CW’s The Vampire Diaries. You might’ve seen her as Alice Cantwell in The Social Network, yet she refuses to accept our friend request. WTF. Her mom’s of Cherokee descent. Before the 19th Century, polygamy was common amongst the Cherokee. Okay… this is like picking players for your basketball team… we’ll take Malese, Vanessa, Moore, Biel, and everyone else on this list.

#19 – Mickie James

We featured Mickie in our coverage of the WWE Divas Thanksgiving Turkey Shoot pictorial and in the Confessions of a Wrestling Fanatic. She’s a five time WWE Women’s Champion who’s now in the TNA Wrestling organization. She also released a country music album in May of this year. She’s part Powhatan, which a Virginian tribe. They say Virginia’s for lovers. Well, we’d love to slip ourselves a Mickie.

#18 – Traci Bingham

Traci’s best known for her stint on Baywatch, her pictorials in Playboy, VH1′s The Surreal Life and her nice melons. Her dad’s Cherokee and Italian. I wonder if fist pumping is allowed during rain dances.

#17 – Salli Richardson-Whitfield

Salli’s birthday is TODAY (11/23)! Happy birthday, Salli. She’s best known for her roles in A Low Down Dirty Shame, The Great White Hype, Antwone Fisher, the Anacondas sequel, and I Am Legend as the wife of Will Smith’s character. Her mom’s African-American and Cherokee. I feel like the Cherokees are the Caucasians of the Native American world only not as oppressive and privileged. Uh, moving along…

#16 – Angie Harmon

Angie’s best known for her stint on NBC’s Law & Order and being married to former New York Giants cornerback Jason Sehorn. You can find her on our list of the hottest Texans. Her dad’s Irish, Scottish, and Cherokee, which is probably a huge reason why Sehorn never signed with the Redskins. Ouch, Washington, D.C. Very ouch.

#15 – Ciara

Much like Fergie, Ciara’s been labeled with the unjustified “man” tag, Ciara has been the subject of sex change rumors ever since 2005. One thing sure not to change is her Native American heritage. She’s also, German, Creole, and Irish – her name’s even Irish for “dark” which is where her sexuality was for a while. That’s not right. We apologize. She’s a chick and she’s hot. You can ogle without concern, guys.

#14 – Ursula Mayes

Ursula was case #5 on Deal or No Deal for four seasons. She’s set to appear as one of Santa’s Helpers on two episodes of NBC’s Minute To Win It. She’s also appeared in Muscle & Fitness, Maxim, Stuff, Elle, Esquire, and FHM. She was the cover model for Juiced 2, appearing in their commercials as well. People named her one of the 100 most beautiful people. We featured her as one of the most bodacious babes of BETUS. You can also see her on Ask Men and Made Man’s Chickipedia. Her dad’s German and Native American and never experimented with sea creatures, which is why this Ursula is not some evil queen of the sea.

#13 – Cameron Diaz

She’s a sexy celebrity stoner, a pro weed chick who is eco-friendly and looks super in a Supergirl costume. In her Playboy interview, she stated she’d get on a plane in a heartbeat for a hard-on, which would explain her hook up with A-rod and her placement on our WAGs of the 2010 MLB LCS list. Her mom’s German and Native American and in 2005 there were reports she’d marry Justin Timberlake in a Native American dress. PowWOW!

#12 – Kari Wuhrer

Kari’s a 43 year old actress and singer whose TV credits include parts on Married With Children, Swamp Thing, Beverly Hills 90210, a couple CSIs and General Hospital. Her film credits include a sh*t ton of B-movies and horror/action movies like Anaconda, Eight Legged Freaks, and Beastmaster 2. Holy Taco featured her in their weekly MILF Mondays feature and you can find her on Chickipedia. She’s of German and Cherokee descent.

#11 – Mandy Moore

Like many other women on our list, she has a habit of dating Ass-getting Assclowns, but there’s not a shot in hell we hold that against her. We would like to hold something against her but we don’t want to make her blush (or laugh at us). Moore’s father is of Irish and Cherokee descent. The Cherokees historically settled in the southeast U.S. and are the largest of the tribes in the nation. The more you know! (*cue shooting star graphic*)

#10 – Carmen Electra

This future Golden Girl is sexy no matter where she is or what she’s wearing. Whether it’s in a mugshot, in a sweater, a towel, or bodypaint. She recently made an appearance at the ARIAs (Australian Recording Industry Awards) but is best known for showing her AREOLAs in Playboy. Her mom’s of German and Native American descent but she makes this list because she has her own line of stripper poles.

#9 – Demi Moore

We featured Demi in our list of the 99 Sexiest Ladies of the 80s and our feature on Hot-Ass Hollywood Cougar Tails. Somehow, after 5 years, she’s still married to Ashton Kutcher despite allegations he’s been cheating on her with some 21 year old chick. Demi’s the elder Moore of Cherokee descent on this list. We want more of Moore & Moore. That should be a sitcom… or at least a lesbian buddy cop softcore flick on Skinemax.

#8 – Vanessa Hudgens

We at COED haven’t seen a single minute of her work, so why do we love her? Maybe it was her nude pics or the fact she washes her face with a vibrator or she’s co-starring in the best “dude” film of 2011. Her dad’s Irish and Native American. Invention alert: peace pipe that doubles as a funnel.

#7 – Karen McDougal

Karen was Playboy’s Playmate of the Month for December 1997 and Playmate of the Year in 1998. She was voted the second sexiest Playmate of the 90s in 2001 and was the first woman to appear on the cover of Men’s Fitness magazine. She’s of… wait for it… Cherokee and Irish descent. Those two groups absolutely LOVE each other. Or maybe they just don’t like condoms?

#6 – Charisma Carpenter

She was on the TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, and she posed for Playboy. Like Megan Fox, she was also rumored to be the next Wonder Woman. She’s of Cherokee descent, so we’re hoping to take her “off road” for a “good ride.” We’re drowning in double entendres over here!

#5 – Beyonce

She makes songs that no guy will admit to owning and is an inspiration to single ladies everywhere. She’s also on our list of most bangable chicks in music despite being Jay-Z’s wifey. Her mom’s of Creole descent, part African, Native American, and French. Your mom’s got a bold scent… BUTTERSCOTCH!

#4 – Megan Fox

Megan recently married her on-and-off bf Brian Austin Green and handed off her role as lead hot girl in the Transformers franchise to Rosie Huntington. She’s one our 50 Most Popular Women On the Web and has been photographed by the absolute man Terry Richardson. We were pumped when rumor spread she might be the next Wonder Woman and we questioned those who called her a freakshow for her thumbs. We give her double thumbs up for being a dreamweaver.

#3 – Jessica Alba

This Girl of Machete and eco-friendly actress has perfected the ass-out pose prompting numerous copycats. DNA tests on Lopez Tonight (really?) showed she’s 13% Native American while other sites report her grandmother was Quebecois, the Native Americans of the Great White North (Canada). One thing’s for sure, she really likes to jiggle. Wait ’til her kids watch her on Sesame Street.

#2 – Jessica Biel

She was one of our TV Characters You Wanted To Hook Up With as the good girl gone bad on 7th Heaven and she looks wicked hot in a wifebeater. She’s also one of the most dangerous women on the web. An interview with People revealed she’s Choctaw, a tribe originally from the Southeast. Most Choctaw supported the Colonies’ bid for independence from the British. We support Jessica’s independence from the tyranny of her clothes.

#1 – Carrie Underwood

Speaking of WAGs, since marrying hockey player Mike Fisher she’s become one of the 50 sexiest WAGs in the world. Not only is she one of the hottest girls in country music but one of the most bangable in the entire music industry as well. Of course, Mr. Fisher might bang your face with his fist if you try anything, but you have free will, do what you want. She’s of Muscogee or Creek descent. Her ancestors once had a land dispute with the Choctaw. We say let her and Biel settle this in the mud wrestling ring.

    Isn't it strange how many of the "ladies" on this list, claim to be part Cherokee? Whenever someone says that to me, I don't believe them! The only ones I DO believe, name a different tribe. My great-grandfather was Shawnee, but it doesn't make me Native American…I'm also part German, Scottish and British, which classifies me as a white girl!

  2. Kiowa says:

    Sorry buddy, but this shit don't float. Half the white people in this frigging country claim to be "part Cherokee".

    Hell, there's whole groups of whites who claim they're unrecognized tribes of Cherokees or Creeks or some such shit.

    I hate white people.

    1. VBitters says:

      I hate you right back, want to drink on it, ?

    2. VBitters says:

      PS. If I had any Native Blood I would demand a blood tranfusion and I don't need a plastic tribal laminated card to say I'm proud.

    3. Danielle says:

      You're a silly fool.

    4. nick says:

      Racism is pointless. Try not to hate people. I'm coloured (coloured is not an offensive term in my country) white people gave my country Apartheid (yes I'm south African), which only ended in 1994 but I don't hate them. and to Gileg, you are only fuelling the hatred.

    5. Gileg says:

      and we hate you

  3. realitychecker says:

    Total trash article not based in any logic and utterly unsupported.

  4. WTF says:

    Wow. This isn't at all the single most offensive thing I've read on the internet in the last year, or anything. Christ. Not only is this BIASED as all hell or basically pornographic for the sake of racial exploitation (on top of all the other exploitation in here), but it's also extremely racist. I hope, for the sake of this writer's reputation (not that I'm banking on much), that a lot of these "jokes" are unintentional. They're not double-entendres. They're disgusting.

  5. Hereinthesw says:

    Yeah my great, great grandfather was a Cherokee Princess too. Pullleeaasseee!

  6. Deb says:

    I don't believe you left anyone out on this list. You are aware of the other Native American tribes aren't you like the Lakota or the Black Foot or are they from Canada? But never the less there are many other tribes and this articule is stupid and not based on fact's. Come on they in most part are of Cherokee. This story would have been better if you did it on why the ladies were of Scot/Irish and Native American heritage. Why? Because the Scot's and Irish worked on a Clan system pretty much the same as a tribe so when they can to the "New World" they fit into the Indian tribual system very well unlike the English and married into the tribe.

  7. Sara says:

    Kudos to you, James from U of T, for producing one of the most blatantly racist, misogynistic, homophobic ("you can ogle without concern, guys") pieces of filth that I have ever stumbled upon. The sense of entitlement that you possess is horrifying/CRIMINAL ("Mr. Fisher might bang your face with his fist if you try anything, but you have free will, do what you want"), but who am I to say a word? Women are merely objects to be leered at!

  11. Luis says:

    Well, Jessica Alba is also half mexican, meaning that most likely she's also part aztec. Accept it or not, they are still indigenous people to this continent, as most hispanics are half caucausian and half indigenous, especially carrying maternal indigenous dna. I'm glad to see people claiming their native american status and not feeling ashamed of it.

  12. Jimenez says:

    Obviously there's no such thing as a Tribal Card elsewhere but in the USA. So people who really are of indigenous descend, like Alba for example, don't have any card, and she really don't need one either, because just one look at her tells that she's part "Native" – but obviously of the Mexican kind. If you think a card carrying guy like Chuck Norris have Native ancestry than her, then you're an utter moron.
    Of course, it different for some of the other 24.

    1. jimenez says:

      I meant – "more Native ancestry than her", sorry.

  13. @NursultanT says:

    Every hot actress with a nosebleed's worth of indigenous blood is now labeled Native American? I don't know which is worse. Trying to hide who you are or trying to play the "my great grandfather was 16th Cherokee so I am super special" card.

  14. Carlos says:

    My Great Great Great Great Great Grandmother was Pocahontas.

    1. Danielle says:

      Ha! I love it. My 12th great-grandmother actually WAS Pocahontas. She had one son (Thomas) who is an ancestor to thousands of us. I just don't know why Disney didn't come to me when they wanted to draw the cartoon version of her. (Oh wait a minute, I do have blonde hair and greenish-blue eyes.) This post on these women is really stupid. When are people going to stop obsessing over their race and just get on with the business of being human?! We could all say we're part African, since every one of us is descended from the first humans to evolve there. We're all related.

  19. seneca injun says:

    This is sooo f*cking disgusting and disrespectful to actual natives! i bet half these women arent even! i mean a f*cking blonde c’mon!!!

    1. @undefined says:

      I have brown hair, brown eyes and brown skin… and I know people pale skin, blonde hair and blue eyes who have a lot more native blood in me than I do. It really has nothing to do with how you look but rather your genetic makeup… :)

  20. Tonya Rennay says:

    I am 1/8 Choctaw myself. its good to know where you come from and the struggles you family has faced, but in today's society it doesn't matter. in another 50 years our children and grand children are all going to look about the same since bigotry is dying off. it is about time too, have you noticed the more 'mixed' we are the more beautiful.

    1. bsdaddy says:

      damn right!
