Being based at Hohne in the 1970s I got to know quite a few of these lads. Many were red indians ( are we allowed to say that these days) and were great blokes.Though you wouldn't want to cross them.

There was a lot of grief within the Canadians at that time due to the English/French speaking schism.

Saw your question about the use of the word Indian. The politically correct designation in Canada is now "First Nation" and they don't let us forget it.
On the other hand people of east Indian origin can still be referred to as Indian.

First nation ? Never heard of that term Bob.

The lads I knew told me that 'they' came up from the USA and settled in Canada . They really did have some words to describe the yanks, such as 'candy arsed .......suckers'.

I got to know a guy called Rick Nash quite well who told me he had another indian name. He came up for quite a few years to Hohne ranges.

pete26,
Further to the politically correct term " First Nation" for North American Indians in Canada, the term refers to their claim that the Indians were here first on this continent before the French and the English. This is a huge issue for the native peoples which they regard as their mother of all battles. It leads to land ownership claims in Canada which results in the blocking of highways and court challenges in order to assert their claims. They want to expand their rights of selling gasoline , tobacco, without levying taxes so that they can open more casinos without Government intervention. As for them coming here from the USA you have to remember that the Indian tribes being nomadic moved North and South because there were no borders between Canada and the US at that time. He may also be referring to the move north into Canada of certain Western tribes in the US such as the Sioux tribe, They came North to escape reprisal of the US Army for their victory over General George Armstrong Custer i.e. Custer's last stand. Hopes this sheds the light further.

Ah right Bob.

The 'I was here first argument' ?

There was another of these arguments south of the border a while back, called 'Kennewick man'.

Gets very heated.

Yes, "Kennewick Man" remains to be confirmed and then what about "Yeti" a favorite in crossword puzzles.

Also many tribes came to Canada for being on the losing side in the American Revolutionary War. Such as the Mohawk who are in Cornwall Ont and Quebec. They claim 1st Nation Status but actualy pushed Huron and Iroquios out of their land on coming to Upper Canada after 1776. Their main jobs in life are high riggers on high rise buildings ( the new building in place of the World Trade Center as an example)U.S. Marine Corp and running drugs, booze and tobacco products across the border. Some of the finest soldiers I worked with were 1st Nation.

Hardration,
I think the Mohawks have been relatively quiet in the Cornwall area in the matter of aboriginal claims but they are still active in smuggling tobacco and drugs in the Thousand Islands area of the St. Lawrence. It's a different story in Quebec where the are still very troublesome.
We have an Indian tribe on a reservation(Ojibway tribe I think) just North of us on Lake Huron.(Sauble) They had leased a lot of cottage lots to whites but last year when the terms of the leases expired they refused to renegotiate and the cottage people are now required to leave their cottages and get out. It's in the courts at the moment. Further south along Huron near Grand Bend, the Federal Government returned Camp Ipperwash to the natives a few years ago. It had been used by the Army cadets during the summer and it was also a firing range for rifle classification , grenade training, and pop up targets in house to house clearing. Our regiment went there twice a year for many years. The natives took it over and it is now in a very ramshackle state. Yes, they were good soldiers.

Brum & bigmal,
You are right on with Sasquatch, Brum; have not seen that one for awhile but there are reports occasionally from British Columbia about sightings of the footprints of Sasquatch. Is Sasquash in the dictionary bigmal?
I think the spool is out of thread on this theme.

It certainly is.

A large hairy humanoid said to live in the NE US and Canada that is said to leave large footprints.

Not much to be remembered by is it, `large footprints`.

Causing chaos and mayhem would be better, i think.
