I'm a real girl now

I received my Métis Citizenship card in the mail last week.  I have been thinking on this for some time waiting to feel something big.  So much conversation and work went into that moment, but the moment itself wasn't the defining thing I thought it would be.  In the work was the claiming of the identity, in the living and decolonializing I became something else.  I am proud to have the paper, but I am prouder to have the life.  What were your experiences of claiming like?
