How many of you did Boyden reach out to over the years for information so he could sound good to the media?

At the time, I thought it was really important to help him so he didn't screw things up in the media. I still think that was important.

But I now realize he had Indigenous women do a lot of work for him. A lot of support, a lot of teaching.

And a lot of flattery. Hard to say no to that, hey?

When I said he needs to stop identifying as Métis, and stop letting people identify him as Métis he said it was out of his hands.

So he has identified himself in many different ways to a lot of people, both publicly and privately. We have every right to question that.

And this Galloway thing is just the latest time he has asked for the labour of Indigenous women to help smooth things for him.

So these rumblings, these questions about Boyden have been around for a LONG. TIME.

I didn't want to hear it, because Boyden is handsome, and charming. He was the first "celeb" to comment on my blog years ago.

I was flattered, amazed! I totally took him at face value on his claims...until those claims got so convoluted and non-sensical.

Indspire identified him as Metis on their website but eventually replaced that identification with Ahmic Lake

So anyone claiming that people are piling on out of nowhere? Please. This guy got more than the benefit of the doubt.

I still find myself not wanting to believe it...and lemme just say, if things keep going like this, there is more heartbreak in the future.

Boyden isn't the only handsome, charming man who has been successfully playing Indian. :(

I wonder if he believes his own lies (if he is lying.) Doesn't matter much at this point, anyhow. 😕

yup, I noticed. Also rather than the sash he wore a big-ass beaded medallion that night. Like a hubcap lol.

Anyway, I am sharing this because I know I am not the only one. And I feel used and gross now.

It is never out of our hands. If we are misidentified, we publicly correct. This is crucial in relating to one another.
