The Beginnings

The Métis of Alberta have a history so rich and diverse that it is almost impossible to document it all on a single webpage. From their involvement in the fur trade era, to their rich political history, to their technology, it is obvious that the Métis culture has helped shaped the province of Alberta.

In this section, we will learn about the origins and identity of the Métis. We will explore the lives and culture of the Métis of the Northwest region by taking a closer look at their lives in Red River, their trade and their buffalo-hunting practices. We will also step into turbulent times in Métis history in the Political Life section. Finally, we will examine Métis technology and the influences that have shaped them.
