@LaurenceNiosi Wow that article you wrote about Sebastien, what a load of absolute crap!! That account @nomoreredface threatened to send a gang of strage men to my house to get me a boyfriend when I posted back against the garbage he was saying.
If that is what you call journalism, I am gonna say you are right up there with JF Keeler.…
This is how exploitative Darryl Leroux is !!

So on wikitree, I finally figured out how to do the relationship finder thing, good god, it shows how truly stupid that judge and Leroux has to be, and it also shows they totally went out of their way to make it 14 generations, LOL .. My unknown Mi'kmaq grandmother who was
married to Philippe Mius d'Entremont was my 8th GG, my mom's 7th, my nans 6th, and my great nan's Evangeline Mius' 5th. Her dad was born in 1862, Tranquille Mius, that was his 4th Grandmother. Who was there to tell her she was a #raceshifter when telling my nan about our Mi'kmaw
heritage/descendency @DarrylLeroux .. When you have me on your race shifting page as being 14 generations, I have all my papers proving this lineage too asshat. lol .. Wanna keep saying I only have 1 native ancestor, 300 yrs ago, lol .. My 7th great grandfather who is the son

@TorontoStar Ah Mr Sinclair .. @Niigaanwewidam .. How does that work when the nations your family belonged to for generations refuses to claim you back and says you never existed? When you are a descendent of the Peace and Friendship Treaties ? When you can prove your indigenous
but nations who used to claim ie #EasternMetis, now say such relations never existed? When they are literally in the RCAP reports?…
Read 16 tweets… -- I always wonder how Darryl Leroux can get research grants and not have to follow Indigenous Research ethics ? I guess the establishments give him a pass, he gets to identity police and decide who is Aboriginal and who isn't now? @CrownIndigenous
@MarcMillerVM , @JustinTrudeau getting really tired of asking this question over and over, and not getting an answer !! Do Canadian Human Rights only belong to those who can afford to enforce them in a court of law? @UN_HRC @hrw @UNHumanRights @CdnHumanRights I get complete
silence. I am a poor Aboriginal women, against Political Institutions with the weight of Canada behind them and no one can even answer a simple question about ethics? That just about tells it all doesn't it !!
Read 29 tweets… - Lawrence Barkwell has wrote a significant portion of the Manitoba Metis History ..
Wow, I don't even know where to start here .. Forgive me Mr Barkwell, this is not about you, it is about the huge issue of Identity Politics and how ugly it gets and people who get drug into it and shamed publicly over it.
U of M Native Studies Dept - Lawrence Barkwell made honorary Metis, I think that is lovely he has contributed years of research to Metis history, however it was Metis history he wrote and made into history as a non-Metis person.

Responding to Darryl Leroux on Twitter…
No, He doesn't respect research ethics on Indigenous people at all .. This is what he has done to #EasternMetis as well, are there some problematic people here who identify as Metis .. yes .. but notice he has not identified any who he doesn't consider to be fraudulent! Meme's
abound, he attacks anyone he wants to .. it is "Colonialism" 101 .. Does this look like the work of a professional with no motive?

Darryl saying:" French Descent equals white - white doesn't equal Indigenous." -- Hmm, me thinks he hasn't really thought that through or else once again, he is being a hypocrite and judging #EasternMetis with a different set of criteria than the west used.

What Jarvis really means, is that the signatory descendants of those treaties, who are Mi'kmaw Metis must never be acknowledged or talked about, Never ever ever !!. No one must know, otherwise it clouds the issues !! 🤔😉

Although she opened a can of worms, she didn't really want to explore #EasternMetis, apparently the only ones who get to have their say are Darryl, and also where is MNC's support for the Mi'kmaw? What about that MOU ?? Image
Apparently I started a fight, when she is the one who popped up saying there are no eastern Metis? Image
I thought it was wonderful when families, kinships and communities re-connect but she doesn't think so ? Image

That 2002 Metis defintion he is referring to, ONLY applies to members of MNC , there are more National Metis org's than just MNC, even though the gov has chosen to only deal with them due to their having rights to oil and gas. Chartrand uses his organization to run over

Read 5 tweets… @CBCNews @CBCIndigenous I can go and pick out something you have done to #EasternMetis people from every category in the journalistic standards you are supposed to follow.
One day I wouldn't be surprised to see a class action lawsuit coming your way for everything you have done politically to sway public perception of Metis people only being MNC Metis. Not one word about the Daniels decision, especially when you calling out people online.
CBC and journalists have a duty of care to be fair, impartial, investigate fairly etc .. I don't think Colleen Gray received that. I don't think many people see that. The liberals have turned CBC into quite the propaganda machine that works with their politics. #EasternMetis may

@OttawaMorning @CBCIndigenous On the issue of if there are #EasternMetis… MNC is a nationalist movement who are trying to use their money and voice to politically influence others into believing they are the only Metis.
MicmacNews-1973-03.- Constitution and By-Laws Union of Nova Scotia Indians - sec 3.12 Metis. When @willgoodon suggests you ask the Mi'kmaw if there are Metis they will say no because they have an MOU with MNC
However, the Eastern Metis have been in their bylaws and constitutions of the Union of Nova Scotia Indians almost since their incorporation date, in 1975 they got their own core funding and were the Metis and NonStatus Indian Association of Nova scotia.

@kaypoth @DarrylLeroux I don't think you are well educated on the #EasternMetis The Marshal case was in 1999, apparently you are not aware of the Metis and NonStatus Indian Association of Nova Scotia. It started out with UNSI. Union of Nova Scotia Indians Incorp in the 70's.
This organization was before MNC and way before the Marshal case.
While you are busy involving yourself in historical revision that you, apparently, are not well informed on, take note of who the publisher is here - Metis social- political movement-by Lusty,Terry,1973 publisher Calgary - Metis Historical Society Provincial Map of Metis.
