Métis  People

About Métis People

Métis are people of mixed European and Indigenous ancestry, and one of the three recognized Aboriginal peoples in Canada. Métis is used to describe communities of mixed European and Indigenous descent across Canada, and a specific community of people that define themselves as the Métis Nation — which originated largely in Western Canada radiating outwards from the Red River Settlement.

Am I Métis?

The Métis National Council (MNC), the political organization that
represents the Métis Nation, defined “Métis” in 2002 as: “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.”
