The original research, from which the material posted on this site was initially derived, was commissioned for the Legislative Assembly of Assiniboia Project, by Manitoba Aboriginal and Northern Affairs, in keeping with the newly implemented Manitoba Métis Policy, in 2010. I am grateful to the Archives of Manitoba and the Legislative Library of Manitoba for access to their collections. My sincere gratitude to Jill McConkey for help in copy editing (and for insights into the history of Red River Settlement) for that project.
