The Métis have been an integral part of history in the Athabasca region of Northern Alberta since the early 1800s. Today, that has not changed.
Our ways of living help to guide us into the future. Our ancestors taught us fishing, hunting, and how to live in a way that preserves the land. We remember them and the knowledge they brought forth. It is important to strengthen and share these ways of knowing. Through our elders—the gatekeepers of our wisdom and knowledge—and others in our community, we are building a map online of where we came from and where we want to go. This is a work in progress that we invite you to be a part of.
