Subject: [BCMA] Search for Metis in local BC archives


My name is Joe and I am doing research on Metis people and their historical presence in the general area around two areas in BC

  1.  Creston, Cranbrook, Fernie and general Kootenay region
  2.   Dawson Creek and Hudson Hope and Fort St John general region
Is anyone aware of links to specific archival information?  Metis have also been called 'half-breeds' or 'mixed blood' among other names in the historical record. Any assistance is much appreciated.

Thank you
Joe Desjarlais
