Or is this another of your deviations, so you can attempt to look like you have the upper hand?
Christ, is it really that hard to follow?
So YA! You are hard to follow sometimes.
Work on it will ya.
they are succubus stealing form the Metis by even pretending to be Metis when they are not.
the Metis with Indian heritage are the real half breeds and are the worst thing that ever happened to Metis.
Metis are Metis, we are our own people, not half breeds.
My ancestors and many other Metis ancestors, were descendants of french and iroquois in Quebec.
they broke the land, had their own language and spoke many others to be merchants, had their own music, dance, and culture in every way. They lived together, they had their own laws and way of life. They were the first people to regulate hunting, they broke the Hudson bay company's monopoly, and they traded with whites and Indians and acted as mediators and go betweens for trade, or outright merchants for the trade itself, anyways.
Basically, it is pure ignorance to think Metis didn't have their own culture and weren't a separate group of people, their own Nation, in Canada.
The English have Norse and Germanic heritage, right? Or for this example let's pretend they do. that doesn't mean when you cross a Norwegian and German today you get a Brit, does it? of course not. So why would you get a Metis today if you cross an Indian with a White? a Metis was a cross between Indian and White hundreds of years ago, but they developed their own culture and lived that culture, it is ignorant to think that by going back and crossing different races TODAY that it means they are part of a culture that existed long ago in their own culture. ignorance, pure and simple.
I don't care what the actual word for Metis means.
The key point is that that is was created a Metis not what creates a Metis. Big difference.
