The AFN has always applied their racial purity laws to those assigned the the AFN reserves.  It is a loss.  Based on mothers, then fathers, then location, then AFN lands ownership, etc.  AFN racial purity laws are also saddening.  Misleading thousands into a perverse concept of life.            One of the important things to know is, although the AFN considers ‘diversity’ a cornerstone, this may be self serving in that many AFN Aboriginals are not, in fact, indigenous.  Many are just recent immigrants.  Genetic testing defined what an Indigenous North American is the year before AFN was formed.  AFN  Aboriginals don’t meet the UN definition of Indigenous peoples, hence the emphasis on ‘territoriality traditions.’  It is convenient and cheaper for Canada to pay off tbe AFN and discount majority Aboriginals.      So, we need to explain this to the future.  We need to correct the wrongs.  We need to compensate AFN disenfranchised peoples.                                                                                    CBC News: Lisa Charleyboy has given a lot of careful thought to her dating life, not just in the typical way that you would expect of a millennial. “I’m a First Nations woman, and the issues of dating and marriage are complex for me,” says Charleyboy.
