Hi Irene,

According to my family tree, I am a direct descendent of Pierre Shawanipenesi through his daughter Aglae Pigeau/Pujos..who was my great great Grandmother. Can you reach out to me to help me untangle this family history? For context I am a Masters student doing research on assimilation and reconciliation and would like to understand my affiliations better as a descendent .

My student email is Thanks!

Melissa Trott
Hello Irene,
My name is Melissa, I met you years ago as a member of the Metis Nation of Ontario. My mother is Judi Trott, who I believe you know. I am trying to sort out the information, just like the others searching for answers on the Pigeau family. I appreciate all the work you have done with this line, however, I have since lost my Metis card, because the MNO says that the information we provided regarding the parents Pierre Pigeau and Maryanne Beauchamps is incorrect and not the right ancestors. This is all very confusing for me. I had belonged to the MNO for years, and feel as native person, that it is important to belong and contribute to your community. I want to find out where my ancestry comes from, and connect with my original community. I had been told that my ancestor was Algonquin from the Golden lake area and that my ancestor was Chief Shawaniprenisis. Now someone from the MNO is disputing this. It is so disheartening. If you can provide any further help in this matter, I would greatly appreciate it.
