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 made up of members who are verified by MNBC as Métis and members who are non-Métis but support the Métis Community.
TRMS is run by Volunteers; Elected Board Members who have their MNBC Citizenship Card and by other volunteer members of the TRMSCommunity.
