Two Rivers Métis Society


Taanishi! Welcome to our Metis Community

Two Rivers Métis Society (TRMS) 
is a registered non-profit society that represents the needs of the Métis citizens in Kamloops and surrounding area. TRMS is a Chartered Community of Métis Nation British Columbia.

Who Are The Métis?

“Métis means a person who self-identifies as Métis, is distinct from other Aboriginal peoples, is of historic Métis Nation Ancestry and who is accepted by the Métis Nation.”  A Métis is a person of mixed European and Indigenous ancestry and is one of three recognized Aboriginal peoples in Canada.   The Métis Nation originated mainly in Western Canada and emerged as a political force in the 19th century, radiating outwards from the Red River Settlement in MB.  Métis people have their own unique culture, traditions, language (Michif), way of life, collective consciousness, and nationhood.

TRMS is a supportive Métis Society and Community which: 

    • • Offers assistance to local Métis in filing for MNBC Citizenship and Chartered Community Acceptance. 
    • • Provides resources which support the Spiritual, Cultural, Health, Educational, Economic, Legal, and Recreational needs of Métis     people within Kamloops and area. 
    • • Brings awareness of the cultural and social activities of the Métis.  
    • • Encourages members to develop their talents and capabilities to serve their community better.
