Appropriated Native Identities the New Wave of Dispossession

Appropriated Native Identities the New Wave of Dispossession

In Episode 11, we talk about a new wave of native dispossession - the appropriation of native identities by "White settlers". Although this isn't new, it has the potential to do great harm to our families, communities and Nations. This show was based on an article I wrote for Canadian Dimension magazine and can be found at this link: https://canadiandimension.com/articles/view/appropriated-identities-and-the-new-wave-of-dispossession Also some of Darryl Leroux's work as it relates to fraudulent Metis claims can be found here: http://theconversation.com/becoming-indigenous-the-rise-of-eastern-metis-in-canada-80794 (pic of Grey Owl - actually Archibald Stansfield Belaney from England taken from Library and Archives Canada) If you would like more information about these issues, you can check out my website at www.pampalmater.com If you would like to support my work, here is the link to my Patreon account: www.patreon.com/pampalmater
