New Website for exposing Pretendians:
« on: February 28, 2023, 09:28:41 pm »
I have not seen this website mentioned here yet, so here is the url:

Some here are aware of the work of Darryl Leroux on "race-shifting" which mostly focuses on the Canadian colonial context.

Currently, they have a call to action which involves a petition calling for the immediate termination of Cindy Baskin:

 The petition identifies her as " . . . a pretendian who has worked at Toronto Metropolitan University since 1997.
Since that time, she has risen through the ranks to become the Chair of the university's Aboriginal Education Council. Baskin is NOT Indigenous and is committing identity fraud by making this outlandish claim that has no basis in fact. Twitter account: pretendiansforhire has completed Baskin's genealogy, there is NO Indigenous ancestry in her lineage. Baskin is 100% white Canadian. . . "

Canada focused. I really wish they'd show their proof consistently. Then it'd be a very valuable resource. One part of the site is just a list of names with no proof, which makes it easy for doubters to doubt them, and for frauds to dismiss them.

Mostly focused on imposters in govt, plus academia. It's been mentioned before in here, the Canadian govt sometimes gives out grants to Nuage frauds or altmedicine types, including even for healthcare on reserves.
