So when I stopped being ashamed (a longer story there) and started to feel a I turned towards the concept of a Métis national identity.That is when I started learning about a larger history than my own poorly understood, ‘boring-anyway’ regional one.
As a racial category, one is little ‘m’ métis when they are not fully Indian or non-aboriginal. This is not the only term that was used, we were also called half-bloods, half-breeds, michif, bois brûlé, chicot, country-born, mixed bloods, and so on.I point this out because although the term Métis predates that official recognition, it was not necessarily the most common term in use.Often we were referred to in the Prairies as the Road Allowance People.I am going to ‘get personal’ so that people cannot effectively twist my words later and use them to deny others who feel that they too are Métis.I am going to speak for myself, not for all Métis peoples.
Oh come on, are identity issues that easily navigated, even on an individual level?
