with the help of the crown land granting provinces. Canadian children, some very young, are asked to ‘self identify’ as Aboriginals by provincial employees, teachers. This results, usually, in the childrens’ rejection by the provinces and AFN as not meeting AFN racial purity standards, which the AFN and provinces continue to modify depending on political winds of special interests.
In school, as recent as last year, I have heard a teacher accuse an Aboriginal of being white and the AFN counselor on campus accuse, through the student, parents of not being pure enough to be Aboriginal. The AFN ‘self indentifying’ program in Canada is another vehicle to Aboriginal disenfranchisement ruined lives. AFN should renounce this school program.
