Hi Gerald
The native I have found in the Richer/Ritchie line is the one common to a large number od people of French Caandian descent. It was the first official marriage between a white settler and a native wife, that of Martin Prevost and Marie Manitouabewich in 1644. You can read the details on the following site:
http://www.geocities.com/dnagws/huron_scout.html

Your descent from that marriage is:

Marie Manitouabewich 1625-1665 m: Martin Prevost 1611-1691
Marie-Therese Prevost 1665-1743 m: Michel Giroux 1661-1715
Anne-Thérèse Giroux 1690-1720 m: Jean-Baptiste Duprac 1689-
François Dupras 1711-1715 m: Genevieve Maheu
François Xavier Dupras m: Thérèse Giroux 1755-
Marie Thérèse Dupras 1794-m: Jean-Baptiste Richer 1798-
Jean-Baptiste Richer 1832-1910 m: Tarcille Deschamps 1830-1870
Amédé Richer 1863-1947 m: Victoria Cayer 1873-1950
Joseph Amédé Richer 1892-1979 m: Marie Léonide Richer 1898-1967
Omer Joseph Ritchie 1923-1993 m: Léona Lacosse 1928-
Gerald Ritchie 1951-

That makes you about one-millionth part native - I don't know if that qualifies you for a metis card. Good luck!

John
