Métis Nation Recognition of the Sault Ste. Marie Métis Community

Most people are aware of the Sault Ste. Marie Métis Community’s deep and rich history. But did you know that it has also been recognized and celebrated by many past and present Métis Nation leaders?


For example, in delivering an intervention to the Supreme Court of Canada in support of the Powley case, former MNC President and current MMF Ambassador Clement Chartier declared Steve and Roddy Powley to be descendants of the Historic Métis Nation. In that same intervention, Chartier also affirmed the historic Sault Ste. Marie Métis Community of the Upper Great Lakes as an undeniable part of the Metis Nation, saying:


“The people who stand charged before you today are descendants of the Historic Métis Nation and, more specifically, the historic Métis community at Sault Ste. Marie… Sault Ste. Marie is part of the larger Métis Nation.”
