The Eastern Métis and “Negationism” in the Academy

THE EASTERN MÉTIS AND THE “NEGATIONISM” OF PROFESSOR LEROUX: “AIABITAWISIDJIK WI MIKAKIK”[1]

BY SÉBASTIEN MALETTE, PHD

TRANSLATED BY RÉMY BIGGS

Introduction

"On September 27, 2017, professor of sociology Darryl Leroux of the University of Saint Mary offered a conference at the University of Montréal, entitled “Historic Revisionism and Indigenization: the creation of “Eastern Métis”. The subject of his conference, linked with his other work, questioned the existence of Métis in Eastern Canadian provinces, whom Leroux accused of ethnic fraud and hostile intentions against those Leroux considered “true” Indigenous peoples. In short, Leroux accused the Métis of the Eastern provinces of Canada (Quebec in particular) of fabricating an Indigenous identity in order to wash away their guilt over colonialism, or, in some cases, to simply obstruct the recognition of Indigenous people and their rights."

This Article provides definitive, in depth, historical, cultural, political and sociological perspectives in regard to past and current arguments about Métis identification , identities, national heritage and political geography. It is exceptionally well written and presented.
