Various tribes inhabited Macedonia in antiquity and the more prominent among them certainly contributed to the development of a distinct Macedonian nation. But even after that development, Macedonia (and much of the Balkans, for that matter) was invaded by different people during different periods. This doesn't mean the legacy of our earlier ancestors had been wiped out, it just means that other influences also had an impact on the evolution of our culture and DNA. The same can be said for many other peoples. Just one example I have used in the past, the French. Their ancient ancestors had a Celtic origin, their language has a Latin origin, their ethnic name has a Germanic origin and many of their celebrated historical figures have a Scandinavian origin. Yet irrespective of this concoction, nobody seems to have an issue with their national narrative or status as the indigenous population of France. Macedonians should never look at themselves as any less valid despite the deception of our enemies and treachery of our politicians. We are the indigenous people of Macedonia and rightful heirs to that heritage.
