You, my egg-nog drinking friend who thinks it’s appropriate to quiz me on my ‘background’ are using the little ‘m’ definition. This is the category I’ve encountered most in Quebec.As a racial category, one is little ‘m’ métis when they are not fully Indian or non-aboriginal. This is not the only term that was used, we were also called half-bloods, half-breeds, michif, bois brûlé, chicot, country-born, mixed bloods, and so on.(I warned some of you I’d be rehashing supposedly ‘old’ territory!

On the other extreme, one can be métis with only a minimal amount of First Nations blood.

You can just imagine the range of arguments involved in deciding where along the spectrum of ‘blood quantum’ is supposedly legitimate.

Kovalevich wrote the girl many letters, found in his apartment, telling her he was “addicted” to her and “I just want to be with you forever,” Larson said in court.

Larson told Clapp that “clergy members,” the girl’s mother and grandmother, and law enforcement officers, including from the Bureau of Indian Affairs, “attempted to intervene and stop him from having a relationship with this child.”Previous deal Kraus-Parr argued Monday that nothing in the case had changed since the prosecution had offered Kovalevich a plea deal before trial.

My blogger name reflects that history, as âpihtawikosisân literally means ‘half-son’ in Cree.

On one extreme of little ‘m’ métis identity, one must actually be half First Nations and half not.She said her recommendation of 10 years with five years suspended was similar to the deal Kovalevich turned down before trial.Kovalevich did not testify at his trial and said little Monday at his sentencing.In a previous post, I described what it is like as an Alberta Métis to come to Quebec and realise that ‘Métis’ does not mean the same thing here.I’m not a shut-in…I realised that there were different definitions out there, I simply hadn’t lived where I was by them before.In another post, I talked about Pan-Indianism, and also Pan-Métisism.
