SASKATOON — A report commissioned after controversy circled a health professor's claims of being Métis says the University of Saskatchewan was unprepared for Indigenous identity fraud and uneducated on Indigenous people. "Indigenous identity fraudsters have exposed the ignorance of USask with respect to Indigenous peoples," says the report by Jean Teillet released Thursday. Some universities have committed to enhancing policies around Indigenous identification, including the University of Saskatchewan, University of Manitoba and Queen's University in Ontario. The report lists red flags to help recognize Indigenous identity fraud, including conflicting stories, vague claims, repeated references to ceremony and claiming membership in a pan-Indigenous organization. “It is a proposal that the academy educate itself about Indigenous identity fraud performance patterns and take steps to eliminate the fraudsters.”The report says asking for verification evidence is not determining whether an applicant is Indigenous.24 days ago Elliot Lake News
