If you are interested to learn more about how the Métis gained recognition as Indigenous Peoples and as a Nation, “The True Canadians: Forgotten Nevermore”, is a book written by Patricia Russell and David Wylynko to commemorate that it’s been 40 years since the Métis were recognized in Canada’s Constitution Act. The title refers to the fact the Métis are the People born of this land. Patricia and David we are at the Métis Nation Region 3 annual stampede barbecue earlier this month, giving away signed copies.
