Well looky here. The third world dreg is presuming to speak for Canada's Native people and thinks he's the arbiter of who is and who isn't FN.
Maybe you should attend the vigil and explain to those fine people that they're wrong about this poor girl's cultural heritage. After all, you've amply proven you know nothing about human genetics, evolution, migration or culture, so I'm sure they'd appreciate your complete lack of knowledge in this matter.
Moron!

There are plenty of blond blue eyed people in this town with native status cards.Any angle to rip off the taxpayers.I guess all you need is a drop or two of native blood and you become one of the blessed ones.

It's all about dominant and recessive genes. My buddy's ex-wife is blonde, blue-eyed and rather pale but she is 50% Native Canadian. You'd never know it to look at her, but if you look at her brother, you can clearly see the Native heritage.
Now, even though the genes for blond hair and blue eyes are recessive genes, if you'd paid attention in Grade 9 biology, you'd understand how that all works.

And yeah, I also agree with you that some are seriously milking the whole "status" thing despite being 1/16th or less.

You'd actually have to have intelligence for it to be insulted.
You'll notice that at the end of my post, I still agreed with you in part.
However just because someone looks like they're White, don't mean they are.
I actually get the opposite in person. Quite regularly I'm mistaken for Native, even by First Nations and Native Americans. I'm not, not even a little bit. But I guess because I merely look like I am, that automatically makes me a member of the First Nations, right? Because that's how it works, right? If it looks like something, then that's what it is.
Genes can be funny things though. Ever seen two White people end up with a child that was definitely NOT White, but still the biological offspring of both parents? Or the same for a Black couple who's child is just a little too light skinned? That's because one of them obviously had at least one ancestor that was dipping their brush in the colour palette.
At it's simplest, genes work like this; let's take a reproductive couple of different ethnicities, say a White person and a Native person. If they have 4 offspring, 2 will look like a combination of both ethnicities, 1 will look predominantly like one parent and 1 will look predominantly like the other parent.
When having less than 4 offspring, there's no real pattern to it. If they only have one child, it's more likely that child will inherit the physical ethnic characteristics of both parents over just one of them, but there's still a 1 in 4 chance that child will look either predominantly White or predominantly Native. Like I said, basic Gr.9 Biology.
In the example I gave previously about my buddy's ex-wife and her brother, that 1 in 4 chance struck twice. She's blond and so pale you could get a tan from the sunlight reflecting off her skin, while her brother looks like he's pure blood Native.
However, to try and mitigate the insult to whatever intelligence you perceive yourself to have, I'll repeat what I said in agreement with you from my last post. "And yeah, I also agree with you that some are seriously milking the whole "status" thing despite being 1/16th or less."
But hey, if you thought I was insulting your intelligence by agreeing with the general concept of your post, then it doesn't say much for your intelligence now does it.

Are you inviting me to join you or something?
Don't get pissed at me because you failed to pay attention in school. If you want to drag your knuckles through life like the uneducated troglodyte you are that's fine, but learn to suck it up when you're corrected. It's more manly than crying like a little bitch. Unless of course you ARE a little bitch.
