The original meaning was a person with African American and Native American admixture, but the term also applied to freed African Americans that lived with Native Americans that were not mixed.

It's unclear how many people whom are considered African American also have Native American heritage but it is clear that most African American do have Native American ancestry as studies continue to be done by historians and geneticists.
