indian blood: He had consumption and he knew he only had a few months to live, recalls Mary Lou Parker, according to CTV. He told me we had Indian blood in us, which made us Metis. He was laying on the chesterfield in the living room of their Yarmouth, N.S., home, his body ravaged by tuberculosis. The 12-year-old felt proud of her Indigenous roots. So she kept it secret until years later, in a quest to explore her identity and gain recognition, she formed the Eastern Woodland Metis Nation Nova Scotia, using a term -- Metis -- usually associated with Western Canada. But she was warned never to reveal her half-breed heritage, as it was then called, for fear of being shunned. (www.immigrantscanada.com). As reported in the news.
