Flandrau, Grace 1925 - "Compliments of the Great Northern Railway."- Manitoba Historical Pamphlet Collection - Red River Trails - they were the free people of Canada, the Metis or Bois Brules, a race born of the fur trade and in whose veins the blood of French, Orkney Islanders
and English mingled with that of every Indian race from lower St Lawrence to the Arctic sea and from the Sault de Sainte Marie to the eastern slopes of the Rockies.
Red River Trails 1925 - Flandrau, Grace - The vehicle was a Red River Cart-patterned somewhat after the ancient peasant carts of Normandy - it testifies to the French descent of its inventors.

@TorontoStar Ah Mr Sinclair .. @Niigaanwewidam .. How does that work when the nations your family belonged to for generations refuses to claim you back and says you never existed? When you are a descendent of the Peace and Friendship Treaties ? When you can prove your indigenous
but nations who used to claim ie #EasternMetis, now say such relations never existed? When they are literally in the RCAP reports? twitter.com/i/events/98959…

That is actually incorrect information still, MNC is a self-identified, self proclaimed nation ..
There are 2 national organizations in Canada that represent Metis peoples, both have an accord with the Canadian Government, both have 2 very separate definitions, CAP definition runs along with the NCC definition, NCC is who had Metis repatriated into the constitution.
