@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.

Couldn't say it any better myself and fully agree. That man's BS is violent bigotry and it is going to come back and hurt all Indigenous people. If you think the gov is going to stop at using his tactics at just Eastern Metis you are very naive.
There has been so much posted about how the Metis/SangMele people of South West NS were treated differently and not by him because he has an agenda to sell a book and be paid by MNC. They are determined to white wash #EasternMetis people , even though Clem himself has already Le père Sigogne et les Acadiens du sud-ouest de la Nouvelle-Écosse - By Gérald C. Boudreau - sang mele - whites did not want to see their unmarried children mixing with the mixed blood race.
done that to Mi'kmaw people years ago in the RCAP 432 report. RCAP 432 - Clement Chartier - Where are all the Indian People - the people looked different in the East- There were blonds, red heads and I guess i was naive at the time.

"Mi'kmaq, Métis agree to address people 'misrepresenting' themselves as Métis | CBC News": cbc.ca/news/canada/no… -- so so many lies
MicmacNews-1973-03.- Constitution and By-Laws Union of Nova Scotia Indians - We are in the bylaws and constitution of the Union of Nova Scotia Indians, but now we are misrepresenting ourselves? I don't freaking think so !! Some major history revisionism going on here due to big
political interests who have a lot deeper pockets than #EasternMetis do. We get no funding whatsoever, even though historically we used to. We used to get funding and grants and had core funding. That was when we were labelled as Metis and NonStatus Association of Nova Scotia. feb 1975 micmac news - Organizational Meeting Non-Status and Metis Indians- Yarmouth.

I am Eastern #Metis, I am Mi'kmaw and French Acadian, how in the hell that makes me a racist at play ? You are a bigot and a charlatan at play, just trying to sell a damn book .. There were Metis in Nova Scotia, we both know it, so give it up buttercup.

Don't you find it kind of hypocritical Jesse, that MNC folks were allowed to self identify as "Metis" when they were NonStatus Indians, but you and @DarrylLeroux ascribe the term #raceshifters to #EasternMetis ?
June 1983 - New Breed - Policy Development Workshop for MNC Successful - Chartier said the -MNC- was not a closed society and that there is room for other Metis , not of the prairies to join the Metis Nation.
June 1983 - New Breed - Policy Development Workshop for MNC Successful, they were encouraged to self identify and they were supported by MNC .. How sweet, but when others self-identify they are called #raceshifters, how convenient.

"Métis researcher Kelly Saunders is the guest speaker Nov. 14 in Chilliwack – Chilliwack Progress": theprogress.com/news/mtis-rese… -- sooo once again , we have professionals who are not actually Metis trying to shape Metis Nationalism ?
Are there any Metis professionals in these important roles and positions? Or just people who want to control the conversation? Wow, @Carolyn_Bennett @CrownIndigenous could it be any more plain than the nose on your face, what you are trying to do?

See this shit right here, I joined to answer all the incorrect comments about Eastern Metis and then everything got deleted and I got the boot, guess you are not curious enough to really want to know the truth ?? More so just to spread untruths and lies. 😢
Seriously ?? Oh well, this is what we are always up against. She definitely doesn't want to know the truth, and I am pretty sure she already did, she just wanted to spread her hatred and vitriol about us, instead of me showing the truth. #EasternMetis
This person does not know me at all. Oh well, not to worried, If i am just a wannabe, she sure took all my posts down in a hurry. Bit too informative for her.

The Indian News, Volume 13, Issue 5 August 1970-Indian News-George Manuel Elected President of National Indian Brotherhood - NonStatus Indians being represented by the brotherhood- Dr Howard Adams had nothing to say, which sounds like he was good with it.
"Fred Plain, president of the Union of Ontario Indians, brought up the question of non-status Indians being represented by the Brotherhood since in Ontario, with
no existing Metis organizations, the Union had opened its doors to active non-status membership in it's organization.
"This provoked a lively discussion of the N.I.B.'s terms of
reference and the possibility of increasing the organization's representation two-fold. In attendance during this session was Metis Leader Dr. Howard Adams, who made no comment. #Metis

Ever stop & wonder what all this lying is about? Ever heard of how important family is in the Mi'kmaw culture. What in the hell is happening? Why are the Metis people from Nova Scotia, being trashed and humiliated? I know we were allies and family with the Mi'kmaw, we went to war

Métis leaders raise concerns about national council, call for reform /via @globeandmail theglobeandmail.com/canada/article…
@globeandmail What fails to get addressed here, although you hinted around the edges of it, is the Native Council of Canada (now CAP) is who got Metis into the constitution of 1982, MNC wasn't even an organization until 1983 and incorporated in 1984. The Metis definition that the NCC had was The Dynamics of Native Politics- The Alberta Metis Experience-Joe Sawchuk- UBC Press, Feb. 1, 1998 - History - MNC and NCC have different definitions of Metis.
not exclusionary as the MNC's and the NCC which is now CAP still has a different definition than the 2002 one that the MNC is now sticking with, after having several different definitions over the years. That is concerning to me and should be a real eye opener to others. How does Dwight Dorey - Canadian Senate - CAP fought to encure that the word -Metis- was included in the constitution in 1982- Harry Daniels  wildly accredited for getting Metis in the Constitution.

drive.google.com/open?id=1_poRN… Amazingly this RCAP report 432, which used to be freely available online, doesn't appear to be online anymore. Apparently INAC doesn't want anyone to be able to access it. Luckily I have it saved in several different locations. It would seem that
the more information that becomes available to back up Eastern Metis position, the more information is locked away from the general public. You might want to think deeply about why that is !!
Let's look at this little section from Clem Chartier for the first example, this was written before the Daniels decision and before we were included into section 91 (24) . We have Pam Palmater, also going around giving talks with Darryl Leroux on the subject of #raceshifting.

Robyn Lawson and Jarvis Googoo saying they have never heard of Metis in Mi'kma'ki - two of the loudest voices calling Eatern Metis people fakes, fetis, pretendians, you name it, we have been called it. I am a French Acadian Mi'kmaw person, "the other metis" .
MicmacNews-1973-03-Constitution and By-Laws of the Union of Nova Scotia Indians-an Indian is a Metis in section 3.12. Kind of weird law expert Jarvis who is Mi'kmaw and ms communications expert Robyn, wouldn't know that information. (1973 Jarvis, nowhere near the Marshall case)
Seems odd Robyn, you know this as I have shared it over and over and yet, you keep the same talking points about there not being any Metis here and we are all frauds, fetis, pretendians. Or you are determined to make us so.
