Is there more to it than the naked eye? Am I missing something? As I said I don't have any intimate examples to go off of.
My dedo seems to think the younger generations living there have tried to re-claim who they are he tells me that on Macedonian heritage hour they show big dances with majority young people and there all singing and dancing to Macedonian songs, the last time he was back was in 2003 and he said in the village and surrounding areas like lerin they all still speak Macedonian.

On the other hand my baba has the same thought as you she thinks everyone who didn't leave are good greeks/wanted to be greek, but she also told me once that the younger generations are trying to learn Macedonian from there grandparents because the language is dying out.

My uncle went back in 2011 and he felt that the language is basically ready to die, he was born in Canada and so maybe he was seen as an outsider and people were hesitant to speak with him?

One thing my dedo told me is even though the older generations are still afraid to publicly be Macedonian, the younger generations arn't.

Slavic ancestry in South Slavs (in my opinion) goes this way:
Slovenes>Croats>Bosnians>Serbs>Macedonians>Bulgari ans.
Bulgarians have (probably) some additional (extra) West Asian ancestry compared to other Slavic nations.

From Serbs and below they are more native than Slavic in my opinion.
