Claims to be "Micmac" or Metis.

His father's Facebook is public. He is alive so I don't feel comfortable naming him or his wife, especially since I see no sign of him supporting his son's current b.s.

My quest can be duplicated by searching Facebook for Fitzpatrick in Chandler, Quebec. Look for the page with moose hunt antlers. There is a 2019 photo of his family.

Dawn Fitzpatrick's father can also be found in articles concerning snowmobiling.

No discussion of involvement in Métis or First Nation community. Clicking around on his father's FB friends doesn't turn up any either.

My father gave me the Irish family name and lineage, but we have been born in America since the 1700s.

I am a North American, and a Gaspesian

Quote
I still have parts of my family that have no clue about indigenous traditionalism and the importance of the revival.

Quote
My blood boils with native and European ancestry. And I fight every day to go back to my Gaspesian belonging, in sometimes ugly and questionable ways.

If I go back to a time when sheltering, hunting or fighting for existence was the only truth, it was crucial for men to be men and women to be women

I am an active musician, done 9 years of classical music, I play all kinds, but I kept black metal away for all these years because I just wasn’t ready for it.

There is a lot of mysteries and untold stories about the natives, and my project speaks about that. I try not to unleash the truth about the culture, but in exposing the dark side of it (wild hunt, torture cults, fire dancing, scalp collecting, to mention a few). I would say I do not speak for the natives. I am a lone wolf. But Ifernach is definitely a native Miq’maw inspired black metal band.

Thanks for each of you working on this.

"Inspired" being almost an admission it's not Native, and then saying he wants to expose Natives as violent, barbaric.

Likely Irish ancestry even if he falls for Nuage "Gaelic" claims. Any sign of any NDN, even distant?

The book I'm working on is about Natives in metal and punk music. There's a little section on racists posing as Native to spread confusion. Surprisingly, none in the US. Dawn is the only one in Canada so far. Most are in Mexico, white or mixed Mexicans claiming to be Aztec and saying it's a good thing they were conquered because they were savages.

His father is somewhat of a public figure, in the snowmobiling communities, also on FB, so I'm thinking tis fine to identify.

Dale Fitzpatrick of Chandler Quebec is active in the local snowmobiling club, is a guide, active regionally to promote. Several mentions and interviews with him available online. No sign of him ever even doing a nod towards any heritage, no mention of the history of the land, no mention of Native communities currently. There are enough quotes from him online that I'd expect something to turn up, especially since he is a promoter and guide. 

Quote
“The people of Gaspésie are good people. Always willing to help! You will see, these are small villages and each community has its own accent, explains Dale, who also assures that English speakers will not have difficulty making themselves understood, since many Gaspé residents speak English.

About Dawn Fitzpatrick:

Quote
He's a "native" so that he can claim to be indigenous to Canada and whine about Der juden across multiple projects.The more projects he starts up the worse they get too.

https://www.reddit.com/r/BlackMetal/comments/176ew8b/why_does_finian_patraic_have_a_project_about/

More trivia about Dawn - he's a Pink Floyd fan and has played in cover tribute bands, he's worked at a local youth center, describes himself as an "English-born person", left inner forearm tat looks to be a moth-man.

Quote
In my culture, the natives were strong people, fast hunters, we kinda lost our path.

Dawn never refers to actual current communities. No specifics. His references to history are general, romanticized, and pan-Indian. He metal persona is isolated, depressed, angry, grandiose. Honestly I can summarize all I've read as his claim that he can hunt moose better than local Native folks do. He is superior to everyone and the world needs to burn down.

No sign of heritage. I myself am not going try to work up genealogy on him. The surname Fitzpatrick is common, he's not given us any leads, access to records will cost money and time, and there are no signs of any communities claiming him.

I keep recording and reading. And learning the native language. Ankami, Wije’wi. Kiwaja’lin, We’kwata’si… I have a surprise release for Halloween eve. A tribute to horror, something a little off-series for Ifernach.

Dawn Fitzpatrick may be learning from something like this language resource manual https://ncpei.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/06/2023-LD-Resource-Manual-Website-Version.pdf

The words he used could translate into something like: look at me, come with me, I am lonely, I am scared.

Thinking about the Reich, walking straight, sporting a fresh haircut, wearing one of the best uniforms out there, living in discipline and majesty.

I can tell that ‘indigenous black metal’ doesn’t mean all the bands agree on the same page. Of course, we could unite for a war to kick out the English Crown and Colonialism, or to kill Christianity for good – but what about protecting our land from the rising of Allah’s disciples?

He claims he is Native as an excuse to be anti-immigrant.

Irish on his father's side, very likely French on mother's. No current connection with any Native heritage, no signs either in parents and extended family/friends. No apparent effort to learn or work with an indigenous community. He is disdainful, superior, and emphasizes hate.

Yes, seen a lot of online lists on forums to try and track all these groups down. Starting with the first black metal and extreme metal groups, there's a lot of hiding behind made up names, using corpsepaint, and having lots of projects under different names. The names get pretty ridiculous, trying to be mysterious and ominous by calling yourself Lord Kitty Cat Defiler or whatever. I saw an interview with Alice Cooper where he laughed about it. He went to Norway and all these groups that wear paint and growl like the cookie monster were coming up to him turned into timid nerds nervously saying "We love your music Mr. Cooper" in the most awkward voices you can imagine.

I'll start a thread listing as many of these imposters as I can name.

Dawn has a Misfits cover band, Skulls 138. Doubt if most of their small audiences know he's a Nazi. There are more pictures there showing how fair skinned he is. He also put out a rap song, seriously. It was much mocked by those realizing Nazis definitely shouldn't try to rap. https://www.facebook.com/skulls138/

His mother has a French surname.

The family has photos up from the 60s and 70s of teens in scouts and sport groups, which include Dawn's father. Mother has a photo up of herself when she was around 6 years old or so.

I don't want to give Dawn any ideas on how he could fake it more.

If his claims were true I'd expect to find indicators, I don't. Nothing.

All evidence points to this family being non-Native, white, solid middle class.

Dude has such an identity crisis. On the one hand, he wants to cosplay as an indigenous person, and be taken seriously as such, but on the other hand he defiles indigenous cultural icons (such as the dream catcher on the Moosegut album cover) with a swastika. An album about hunting... he's just an edgelord that's hard to take seriously

38fangz is said to also be him: https://www.discogs.com/release/27256680-38fangz-ghostizgod-mixtape Tracks include "Tribal Stompin' (Don't Give A Fuck)" and "Witches & Does".

He has more tats. He performed at the May 2024 Steelfest in Finland, both as Ifernach and as a session guitarist for other groups.

Here is Dawn Fitzpatrick's maternai grandfather obit translated to English: https://www-hgdivision-com.translate.goog/en/Obituaries/Details/12771/bruno-duguay?_x_tr_sl=auto&_x_tr_tl=en&_x_tr_hl=en&_x_tr_pto=wapp

All their ancestors I've found so far in census are listed as versions of Nationality: Canada, Race or Tribe: French.

Most Deguays in this area have a common ancestor who came from France in the mid 1750s or so.
