Tansi;
I guess that you didn't notice my question about how it is that you claim to be Metis, but also state that you are "enrolled."  Since the Metis are Aboriginal people who are not members of First Nation status, I would be interested to know of how you are Metis.  Please see my question about this in the reasearch needed category in which this was asked.

I like some of what you are saying, especially since the main economy of my Metis community is the sale of crack cocaine.  Some of us have been working very hard to find ways of providing alternatives to this problem, but are working in our Metis and First Nation communities to do this.  If you know of ways that will help with this, I am interested.

heya Kyle this is Eric from Myspace  :D

How ya been, little bro?

send me a friend request on your new profile, slacker...I feel unloved lol  :P

What I find hysterical is someone's arguement with you is that they want to defend themselves by saying "are you going to judge who is and who isn't NDN by how they look?" but insist on using the term PODIA on others...THAT is the funniest thing ever...also probably one of the more hypocritical things ever.

Tansi;

Although Metis people are mixed blooded, there are also a number of other criteria which certainly do not include everyone or anyone who is only mixed blooded.  Since this has been extensively written on in other areas of this forum, I did not go into all of the criteria for the Metis people.  I would suggest that you learn about this, rather than only being disrespectful in your responses.

Our people have fought for generations to ensure that our people became recognized as a distinct Aboriginal people in the Canadian Constitution, under section 35, which recognizes Indian, Inuit and Metis as Aboriginal people in Canada.  Although there are Metis people in the US, the US government has not recognized them, in this way.  There is a great deal of blood on our backtrail and the recognition of the fact that our people have survived and remained Culturally distinct has cost the lives of many.  This sacrifice is being abused when people who are not Metis try to use our peoples struggles and successes, in ways that may give themselves an assumed and false identity.

One of the issues that continually comes up, is that there are many people who can not find ways of being recognized by the Aboriginal groups that they claim to be descended from, who will often identify themselves as Metis, thinking that no one can challenge this.  Our Culture is very much alive and many of us spend a great deal of time and energy working to Maintain our Traditions and ensure the survival of our people.

Please consider this and hopefully you will learn about us.  This forum is one in which Respectful dialogue is encouraged and can be a valuable tool in learning about some of the issues that are being faced by Aboriginal peoples all over Turtle Island.

You are the one that needs to "chill out",  cause you are getting old fast.

I think you need to quit with the power trip Fredrica....

Im simplying implying a slight sarcastic humor here, and you obviously do not pick up on it. Ya know the stereotypical sarcastic "ndn humor"

if im getting old and you hold the deciding vote that im old and not needed then cool because I dont need to protest online.

im just looking to share some jokes and talk about things a bit more serious.

but i think you should quit being so invested in your online feelings. Because so far guess what? No fights, no real drama, just clarification of things some of us didnt get the first time.

but again if you want me out of here then hell ok! its spring and i have alot more things I could spend my time doing out here.

Take your humor elsewhere then.  No sense in your lack of respect for others.
