Canadian Pop Star Justin Bieber Believes He’s Indian Enough to Get Free Gas

In the August issue of Rolling Stone, pop star Justin Bieber reveals  that he believes he has Native heritage. The claim is not a central part of the  article — indeed, it’s a comment so brief the writer has it in parentheses:

 

He’s wearing a Chicago Blackhawks cap (“I’m actually part Indian,” he  says—”I think Inuit or something? I’m enough percent that in Canada I can get  free gas”), a blue short-sleeved shirt and khaki shorts that hang all the way off his butt.

The “free gas” misconception is a common one, and stems from a policy  described on Ontario’s Ministry of Aboriginal Affairs website:

     In Ontario, there is a tax of 14.7 cents per litre on gasoline. First  Nations people with a gas card do not have to pay this tax if they buy gasoline  for personal use from an authorized service station on a reserve.

Bannock tacos, fried baloney – this is aboriginal cuisine?

Bannock tacos, fried baloney – this is aboriginal cuisine? | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

Until recently, aboriginal restaurants were practically non-existent in Canada; you could only buy the cuisine at first nations events or at the odd cafe on a reserve. In the past couple years, half a dozen restaurants have opened specializing in native food. Each one faces the challenge of trying to explain the concept to non-aboriginal diners; while just about every Canadian is familiar with Chinese fried rice, tacos and sushi, few have anything but a vague notion of our own indigenous cuisine.

 

Janine Manning, president of the Aboriginal Students’ Association at York University, was excited to take her son to Tea-n-Bannock so he could enjoy the food she had eaten as a child visiting relatives in Neyaashiinigmiing, Ont. “Before, if you were in Toronto and you wanted to eat an Indian taco, or Kwik or baloney and bannock, you’d have to cook it or wait for the next powwow,” she explains.

“Part Indian” (or is it Inuit?) Justin Bieber faces online backlash over “free gas” claim | APTN National News | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

“I’m actually part Indian. I think Inuit or something. I’m enough percent that in Canada I can get free gas,” Bieber told Rolling Stone, which features him on the cover of their August edition with the headline: Hot, Ready and Legal.

 

The comment was quickly picked up by several blogs and ignited mocking reaction from many online.

“Omfg Justin Bieber!! Wow. I didn’t like him already, now this makes me so angry!!” wrote Kat Partridge, on APTN National News’ Facebook page.

 

“WTF man…what an arse…like really,” wrote Ray Hudson.

 

“Can someone ask him where all the free is? I would like to know! Lol,” wrote Shevon Maggie.

 

“Well wow. First off it’s not free gas and second, the boy doesn’t know that status cards are only for status First Nations. Maybe he’ll change his heritage next month,” wrote Brandy Franklin.

Thomas King, still not the Indian you had in mind

Thomas King, still not the Indian you had in mind | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

A knock on the door at a house in Guelph, Ont., brings a tall, thin man. He fills the doorway. “Did you bring the whole tribe?” Thomas King asks in mock horror. “Come on in. I just baked an apple pie. It’s right out of the oven. We’ll let it cool, then have it with some coffee."

 

“I have a new book coming out in November,” he says. “It’s called The Inconvenient Indian. Non-fiction. Sort of.” The “sort of” slips by almost unnoticed.

 

“I decided not to call it a history because it’s not a proper history,” he explains. “I’m calling it a narrative history. I know what a history looks like, with footnotes and all. This is more of a narrative history. I think I say in the book that it’s more of an adult conversation that I’ve been having with myself for most of my life.”

Shawn Atleo a été réélu chef national de l'Assemblée des Premières
Nations (APN) avec 66 % des voix à l'issue du troisième tour de scrutin.

 

Le  chef sortant a obtenu le vote de 341 des 512 chefs qui se sont prononcés. Shawn
Atleo a d'ailleurs largement devancé ses sept adversaires à chacun des
trois tours.

 

La juriste Pamela D. Palmater, qui est originaire du nord du Nouveau-Brunswick,
arrive en deuxième position avec 141 voix au troisième tour. Mme Palmater se
veut partisane d'une approche plus musclée vis-à-vis d'Ottawa, alors que
l'approche du chef sortant tend à être plus conciliante.
