Question matte nation

I hope I spelled that right-

who are these people? they call them selves the Matte Nation. doesn anyone know anything about them. they look white(ish) all the reading i have done says they are whites from Qubec, Canada. half Huron to 1/16th Huron and they moved accross to form Manitoba..

I think those that are only 1/16th Huron would be called Semi-Mattes. Unless of course, their other parent was a Gloss, in which case they're known as Satins.

Métis Nation

This nation originated in Canada. They are "mixed" blood Indians and formed their own tribal band called the Métis Nation . Do a search on "metis" and you'll come up with a lot of results.

There are many different ways to pronounce "Métis." The most common pronunciation in Ontario is "MAY-tee." or "may-TEE."
I've noticed people from Saskatchewan are more likely to say "mitiss", or MET-iss" or "mi-TISS. I have been warned that "mitiss," in one Northern Saskatchewan dialect, also refers to a portion of the human anatomy where the sun never shines.

During the First Ministers Conferences on Aboriginal Matters some people from the Maritimes pronounced it "May-Tay,"as if it were two words.

(Upper case is used to identify the most heavily accented syllable.)
