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.
In a previous post, I described what it is like as an Alberta Métis to come to Quebec and realise that ‘Métis’ does not mean the same thing here.
I’m not a shut-in…I realised that there were different definitions out there, I simply hadn’t lived where I was by them before.
Oh come on, are identity issues that easily navigated, even on an individual level?
Yes I am going to get personal, because it’s important that you know where I come from so that you understand why I have the opinions I have, and why others from different backgrounds may agree with me or not.
Following this through, you could imagine emerging Métis communities, not just historical ones.
