Quote
Meg works with Howard Kimewon, an adjunct instructor who grew up speaking Ojibwe on Canada's Manitoulin Island on Lake Huron
.

Quote
Howard is the expert on speaking and translating in Ojibwe.

---------

Quote
Howard Kimewon and Margaret Norri are both teachers who specialize in helping students become speakers of Anishinaabemowin. Their goal is for readers to understand each and every word and begin to use this beautifully complex language.  Howard is an Ojibwe scholar.

Jim Northrup, 73, a Writer About Life on the Reservation: [Obituary (Obit); Biography]
Roberts, Sam. New York Times, Late Edition (East Coast); New York, N.Y. [New York, N.Y]08 Aug 2016: A.21.

Quote
Jim Northrup, a born storyteller, began his writing career by necessity: Sent to a government boarding school as a 6-year-old American Indian boy, he resisted assimilation by regularly exchanging letters with his family on the Minnesota reservation that would become his home again.

Mr. Northrup, who died on Aug. 1 at 73 in Sawyer, Minn., was a published author, columnist, playwright, poet, performer and commentator with crossover appeal beyond Indian country, his books winning state and regional awards.

Quote
In her introduction to "Anishinaabe Syndicated," Margaret Noori, then a professor at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, wrote: "This is a book to hand anyone curious about reservation life, about treaty rights, about global issues viewed through a local lens, about life and death and the ups and downs that chase us from one end of that journey to the other. There is cultural value in walking the rez road with Jim, but there is great literary value as well."

----------

Looks like she has had legitimate teachers and mentors.

WINative:

Quote
But she should not portray herself as Native person with any Native heritage, if none exists.
She has been acting as a Gatekeeper at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and consolidating her power there and consulting on every article on Native people in Milwaukee.

The gatekeeping and consolidating power is very concerning. That represents a lot of money, power, prestige, and crowding many others out. Plus scholarship and expertise can become distorted.

Lying about heritage makes me question everything else she is doing.

Quote
In the fall of 2005, Professor Philip Deloria hired Margaret Noodin “on a part-time basis to explore ways to enhance and update the curriculum” in the Ojibwe language classes. Noodin came to the University of Michigan with an educational background in creative writing, linguistics and a 2001 doctorate in English from the University of Minnesota.  She also brought with her personal connections to Anishinaabeg culture and language as a “second language speaker affiliated with the Grand Portage Band of Chippewa Indians and Metis community of Quebec.”  Together, she and McCue taught the Anishinaabemowin classes for two and a half years.


Quote
In the winter (spring semester) of 2007, fluent and first language speaker Howard Kimewon started visiting McCue and Noodin’s classes.

Quote
In the fall of 2007, “McCue, Kimewon and Noori taught the courses as a team...".

Quote
The following spring, Howard was hired as a Lecturer I and the three of them continued to teach as a team.  McCue and Howard provided the language and their knowledge as fluent speakers.  Noodin brought her training in linguistics and cultural experience to the table.

If anyone there had any suspicions she was not what she claimed, we have yet to see them.

Are you talking here about Chelsea M Mead, who wrote this dissertation https://repository.asu.edu/attachments/135011/content/Mead_asu_0010E_13944.pdf , or about Margaret Noori - who is someone Ms. Mead quoted in dissertation?

I might not have been clear in my initial post.

When I checked Ancestry, I looked at the Minnesota birth index database. The O'Donnells are listed as having had one child, Shannon Marie, in 1969, and it's definitely not her. I searched by birth date, location, etc., but no sign of Margaret in that index, which is why I think it's possible that she was adopted. That of course doesn't prove anything one way or the other about her biological ancestry.

The story of Métis ancestry from Montreal is curious, as is the second-hand statement about being fluent in both "U.S and Canadian" dialects. Did she have biological parents from Canada (Indian or not?)

In a 2012 issue of Anishinabek News, published by the Union of Ontario Indians - Anishinabek Nation (p. 20):
https://issuu.com/anishinabeknews/docs/anishinabeknewsmay2012

Margaret Noori's affiliation is given as "Minnesota Indian Tribe". It's oddly not specific, allowing that the paper is from Canada.

Papers of the Forty-First Algonquian Conference:
https://ojs.library.carleton.ca/index.php/ALGQP/article/download/2229/2008/

She talks about a conference in 2007 where lesson plans were designed:
"Originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota, I was in my forties at the time and am a second-language speaker affiliated with the Grand Portage Band of Chippewa Indians and Metis community of Quebec. Although I hold a PhD in linguistics, I am the younger, female speaker of western origin, which contrasts sharply with the biography and role of the other members of the team."

With George Hill the grandfather I kind of hit a dead end with his parents. In almost every census both his parents are from New Hampshire. Only in one census his father was from Wisconsin. It appears that he and a sister may have been orphaned in the 1880's. I found him and his sister living with an uncle in Rhode Island. Here's a census from 1900 with wife Lizzie Hill.

Grandmother Elizabeth Lizzie Hill is from Canada as were her parents. I wasn't 100 percent sure but her maiden name could be Meyers. Here's the same 1900 census with Lizzie Hill. Both parents are from Canada. In almost all censuses her parents are from Canada. There was one where her father birthplace said New York. This is probably where Margeret Noodin thinks she Metis. I believe she said in an article?? that she was Quebec Metis. Just for the record there is No Quebec Metis. It's made up bullshit. Go to www.raceshifting.com Darryl Laroux's book Distorted Descent: White claims to indigenous identity.

Her birth place is listed here as Greeley, Colorado. https://5019.sydneyplus.com/Heard_Museum_ArgusNET_Final/Portal/Portal.aspx?component=AAAM&record=822816ba-fa35-4b02-aefa-ff31b47509a3 But no specific source is listed. It could be a database glitch. I've put in a query for more information.

She may have been born in another state, then raised in Minnesota.

At the bottom of that web site page is the  Margaret Ann Noodin curriculum vitae 2018 December. This includes a list of grants received before and after tenure.

Margaret's sister Shannon can be found on FB and elsewhere online. There is a family resemblance. Margaret's daughters (one is named Shannon) both have FB connections with Margaret's sister.

I suppose there still could be other circumstances - adoption etc.

Margaret's sister is a psychologist and I see no mention of Ojibwe.
