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 !! 🤔😉

"Ex-Senate staffer says she felt forced out for questioning colleague's Métis identity claims | CBC News": cbc.ca/news/indigenou…
well as usual @CBCNews @CBCIndigenous are not being fully honest. There are 2 national Metis orgs, both have different definitions of what it means to be Metis and only one of them was involved in putting the Metis into the constitution and it wasn't MNC or MMF .. it was CAP
If you read the Constitution and bylaws of the Union of The Nova Scotia Indians - UNSI you will see Metis were recognized in the east in the 70's. MNC was not incorporated until 1984. I think your staffer also really needs to read the supreme court Daniels decision as well ..

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.

Just in case you hear the little m and big M nonsense, it has been injected into the Metis Nationalism conversation by of course, the MNC. Must be nice to be able to have their millions, write their own definition of Metis Nationalism and tell others what their's is as well.. 🤨 Image
Oh wait, that is not quite how history works, usually one collects the historical data out there, doesn't script their own ..
Confederacy of Metis Peoples concept, challenged the attempts of the MNC from establishing restrictive prairie orientated national definition of Metis. The formal development of the Confederacy, began in 1992, with a resolution of the Native Council of Canada general assembly. Image
