Last Updated: 2019-11-15


A First Nation individual who is not registered as having "Indian" status under the Indian Act (1876). This may be due to many reasons such as his or her ancestors were ignored and never registered, or because he or she lost status under the 1876 Indian Act [89] and successive amendments.
