The M¨¦tis Nation of Ontario (MNO) Windsor-Essex M¨¦tis Council (WEMC) worked with the Chumzuk Museum in Windsor to develop a small M¨¦tis display as part of two displays being exhibited at the Museum. The display is called There¡¯s Indian in the Family and M¨¦tis/Half Breed People, and the text and maps used were taken from the MNO Education and Training M¨¦tis Education Kit and included M¨¦tis contributions during the War of 1812; which was an important event in the Windsor area.
The MNO WEMC was part of a planning committee that the Museum formed to encourage groups within the Windsor area to share their stories through artifacts and personal collections. MNO WEMC Senator Jim Turner provided a prayer that was also incorporated into the display. By March 1, 2017, the M¨¦tis display was ready and the MNO WEMC was very pleased with the final result.
The main purpose for the display was to promote the MNO WEMC and encourage local MNO citizens to be proud of their M¨¦tis history.
The second display is still under construction. It will be larger and will focus on the M¨¦tis historical timeline. It will also feature some updates about the most recent M¨¦tis rights cases and Margaret Froh, the first woman to become MNO President.
The second display will also look at the contributions of M¨¦tis to Canada and Ontario within the context of Canada 150. This will include the achievements of Ontario M¨¦tis, the Red River and Northwest Resistances and Manitoba¡¯s entry into Confederation.
The MNO WEMC respects that there is varied views on Canada 150, so the second display will show M¨¦tis progress within Ontario and also respect the contributions of M¨¦tis veterans.
