White Claims to Indigenous Identity
Auteur/ Illustrateur / Sous la direction de : Darryl Leroux
Distorted Descent examines a social phenomenon that has taken off in the 21st century: otherwise white, French-descendant settlers in Canada shifting into a self-defined “Indigenous” identity. This study is not about individuals who have been dispossessed by colonial policies, or the multi-generational efforts to reconnect that occur in response. Rather, it is about white, French-descendant people discovering an Indigenous ancestor born 300 to 375 years ago through genealogy and using that ancestor as the sole basis for an eventual shift into an “Indigenous” identity today.
