Uh, did this guy admit to committing fraud/perjury?
Doesn’t matter what box you mark on financial aid forms. The race/ethnicity markers are just for statistical purposes, you don’t get any money or any discounts from that. Any time you get any aid specifically intended for NDNs, there’s a vetting process in which you either have to provide your enrollment number or proof of direct lineage to an immediate family member who is enrolled (although I think some financial aid programs will let you claim an enrolled grandparent)
If it were as easy as just ticking off a box, there’d be no money left in Indigenous education funds for actual NDN people
Looks like just another White dude spreading fabrications about how educational aid for Indigenous people works to me
