'You're not an Indian': Mohawk woman says clerk rejected status card, saying she didn't look Indigenous

 

February 15, 2017



A Mohawk woman from Kahnawake says a clothing store clerk in downtown Montreal "fat-shamed" her and said she didn't look Indigenous enough to have an Indian status card.

Orenda Boucher-Curotte was shopping for a winter coat last Friday at Kiki & Co. in the Alexis-Nihon shopping centre.
