‘Who’s a Fauxcahontas?’

When you have systemic racial categories, you must have definitions and standards for those who ‘qualify’. Nothing shows better how ludicrous the whole process is than the arguments over who then qualifies. P.S. If being an aboriginal doesn’t result in racial privilege, why are so many trying to claim it? ALL of this should be an embarrassment to Canadians…

“A Halifax academic is questioning the claims of ‘Indigenous’ {sic, he means ‘aboriginal’ You’d think an ‘academic’ would get it right!} identity by several federal election candidates.

“Darryl Leroux, an associate professor of ‘social justice {Of course} and communities studies at Saint Mary’s University, says at least four federal candidates from the ‘Liberal’, ‘Conservative’ and Green parties have made dubious claims of ‘Indigenous’ {sic} identity.
{That applies to ANY Canadian aboriginal claiming to be Indigenous’…}

“Leroux, who recently published a book called “Distorted Descent: White Claims to Indigenous Identity” {This is typical of the racist material being produced at our taxpayer-funded universities – all while pretending, in an Orwellian fashion, to be ‘anti-racist’…}, said all four claims seem to cling to the largely-discredited idea that having one ‘Indigenous’ ancestor somewhere in the past can bestow someone with an ‘Indigenous’ {sic} identity.
{Kind of like “the largely-discredited idea” that having aboriginal ancestors makes one ‘Indigenous’?}

This idea that all you need is a long-ago blood connection — there is a consensus in ‘Indigenous’ {sic} studies, as theorized and thought through by ‘Indigenous’ ‘scholars’, that this is not acceptable“,
said Leroux.

{NOTE: ‘Academics’ are not necessarily ‘scholars’, and university teachers are not necessarily ‘academics’. In this case, he is trying to justify the same type of categorization authority for aboriginal ‘academics’ that was practiced by German Nazi ‘academics’. It is an inevitable result of the folly of racial categorization…}

It actually is an attack against ‘Indigenous’ self-determination and sovereignty.”

{And now we get to the heart of the matter – it’s always the same:
The attempt to Balkanize Canada with the creation of independent, ‘sovereign’ aboriginal ‘nations’ subsidized by Canadians. And these categorization arguments are ultimately about who would qualify as ‘citizens’ of these ‘nations’…}

“Leroux singled out Marc Serré, an incumbent MP and candidate for the ‘Liberal’ Party in the Nickel Belt riding in Ontario; George Canyon, a ‘Conservative’ candidate for Central Nova in Nova Scotia; and Green Party candidates Amanda Kistindey, running in the Ontario riding of Don Valley West, and Jocelyn Rioux, who is running in the Quebec riding of Rimouski-Neigette-Témiscouata-Les Basques.

The most infamous Fauxcahontas…

“Serré, who was co-chair of the {segregationist} ‘Liberal’ ‘Indigenous’ {sic} caucus as an MP, recently deleted a section on his online candidate biography stating he was a

citizen of the Mattawa/North Bay Algonquin ‘First Nation’ and Métis of Ontario.”

{That could be because the Mattawa/North Bay Algonquin ‘First Nation’ is NOT a recognized ‘First Nation’. They are newbies trying to jump on the gravy train. And as for the Metis:
There is no consensus on who is considered Métis or a non-status Indian, nor need there be. Cultural and ethnic labels do not lend themselves to neat boundaries.” {!?!}
From the nonsensical Supreme Court ruling granting them Constitutional status…}

“It remains in his biography on the web page for the {segregationist} ‘Liberal’ ‘Indigenous’ caucus.

“The Mattawa/North Bay Algonquin ‘First Nation’ is not an Indian Act Band or a self-governing ‘First Nation’ with a ‘modern treaty’. It is an entity created as part of the controversial ‘Algonquins of Ontario’ {An aboriginal lobbying organization claiming treaty and land rights} land claim that has been criticized by Algonquin ‘First Nations’ in Quebec who question its legitimacy.

“Serré is on a voters’ list drafted in 2015 to determine who could vote for the ratification of an agreement-in-principle. According to the document, his root ancestor is Marie Mitewamewkwe. Also known as Marie Miteouamigoukoue and Marie Miteouamegoukwe, Mitewamewkwe is believed to be an Algonquin woman born circa 1631, according to Leroux’s book. She died in Trois-Rivières, Que., on Jan. 8, 1699…

“Serré told CBC News that he has Algonquin ancestry through four lines on his father’s side and and at least one on his mother’s side, but admits only one link is documented and the rest are part of family lore…

“Serré said he and his family have always ‘felt’ ‘Indigenous’ {sic} at their core.

Growing up, we considered ourselves more on the Métis side … my grandfather’s brothers and sisters lived off the land … and clearly if you look at pictures, you see a lot of resemblance to my great-great-grandmother“,
said Serré.
All my ancestry on all sides lived very poor, lived off the land.”
{That’s got nothing to do with being ‘Indigenous’. People of all races “lived very poor, lived off the land”…}

“Serré said the documented connection runs through his father, Gaetan Serré, his father’s mother, Jeanne Aubin, and her mother, Marie Victoire Octavi Trudel. Serré said Trudel’s mother was Marie Metamakin.

“CBC News took Serré’s lineage to independent Montreal-based genealogical researcher Dominique Ritchot. Ritchot followed the line and found that Trudel’s mother was a woman named Josaphine Barette, whose parents were Vital Barette and Marcelline Lareau, who were married on Feb. 9, 1858, in Napierville, Que.

“CBC News approached Serré with Ritchot’s findings last week. He responded Tuesday with a short statement.

I am proud of my heritage as a citizen of the Algonquin ‘First Nation’ in Mattawa-North Bay“,

{That’s ridiculous. You’re a CANADIAN citizen running in a CANADIAN election!}
the statement said.

“The ‘Liberal’ Party deferred questions to Serré.
“In a now-deleted section of Amanda Kistindey’s profile on the Green Party’s website, she identified as an Acadian-Métis with “strong ancestral heritage” which has shaped her advocacy.

“Leroux said her claim as Acadian-Métis also likely hinges on a more than a three-century-old ancestor. Acadian-Métis claims first surfaced in 1999 and in a 2001 court case, he said.

It’s an identity appropriation {!} … this is very insidious because it’s much harder to call out“,
he said.
It’s wrong because those same individuals are using this ‘anti-colonial’ or ‘de-colonial’ language to assert these identities.”
{Have aboriginals patented those terms? After all, that language is simply Marxism in a new disguise…}

“In an email to CBC News, Kistindey said that while she’s never grown up on reserve or “even really been immersed in the culture“, she is proud of her ancestral heritage. While Kistindey did not respond to followup questions, the Green Party said in a statement it

does not verify the background of our candidates who self-identify as ‘Indigenous’ {sic}.

“The statement said the party believes individual ‘Indigenous’ ‘nations’ and communities should have the authority to decide who is ‘Indigenous’ {sic}, “not Ottawa“…
{What a foolish and irresponsible position…}
“Green Party candidate Jocelyn Rioux says on his candidate profile that he is the “Aboriginal Chief for the Environment” for the Rising Sun Band council. Rioux told CBC News via email that on his mother’s side of the family, his ancestors are Huron-Wendat from Wendake, Que.

{The Métis ‘Nation’ of the Rising Sun (M‘N’RS), the organization representing the largest number of “Eastern Métis” individuals (about 16,000 as of April 2017). The NMSL has a tendency to portray its members as the only authentic ‘Indigenous’ {sic} people in “their” territory.

It started out as 9-person hunting rights association that morphed into “métis” organization in 2006 (after leaders found out about Powley decision). Leaders are on the record explaining that they became “métis” as a political strategy to oppose Mi’kmaw territorial agreement.

“When asked why he identifies as Métis rather than Huron-Wendat, he said it’s because his family is still searching for his father’s ancestry and that his mother’s lineage isn’t recognized under the Indian Act.

It’s a form of racism“,
said Rioux.
But our ‘nation’ {sic} did detailed genealogy studies and acknowledged many of our members could be recognized as ‘First Nations’ {aboriginal}.

I remember when I was young, being tormented by other children for being ‘Indigenous’ {They wouldn’t have done that because back then, NO ONE was called ‘Indigenous’}, and now it’s adults who deny our identity. I imagine that the ‘genocide’ continues to work in silence and true reconciliation is not here“,
he said.

“In an interview with CBC Nova Scotia earlier this month, ‘Conservative’ candidate George Canyon said he identified as a member of the Eastern Woodlands Métis ‘Nation’. When CBC ‘Indigenous’ {sic} contacted the ‘Conservative’ Party about Canyon’s ‘Indigenous’ identity, it sent a statement that said Canyon was

proud of his Mi’kmaq heritage, but is not status“.

“Leroux said the Eastern Woodlands Métis ‘Nation’ is “perhaps the most fraudulent Acadian-Métis organization” and that Canyon is falsely claiming to be ‘Indigenous’ {aboriginal}.

“Neither the Eastern Woodlands Métis ‘Nation’ nor the Métis ‘Nation’ of the Rising Sun is recognized by the Métis National Council (MNC). Last year, the MNC signed a memorandum of understanding with the Assembly of Nova Scotia Mi’kmaq Chiefs to educate the public about the legitimate Métis ‘Nation’ and Mi’kmaq issues.”

“Will Goodon, ‘housing minister’ for Manitoba Métis Federation, said unless a candidate has roots to the Métis ‘Nation’ in Western Canada, they are not ‘Métis’.

There is only one Métis ‘Nation’,”
he said.
It’s absolutely clear, cut and dry. The Acadian people are Acadian people and they’re not Métis. And if your relations are Mi’kmaq, why don’t you want to be Mi’kmaq?

“It’s a growing problem that people think having a mixture of ‘Indigenous’ and ‘non-Indigenous’ ancestry makes a person Métis, he said.

It’s not a catch-all phrase for people who have some ‘Indigenous’ ancestry going back five, 10, 12 generations“,
said Goodon.
They can be who they are, but they’re not us.
