Metis Archival research centre to help with citizenship.
The Metis Nation-Saskatchewan(MN-S) opened its doors to a new genealogical and archival research centre in Saskatoon on February 3.
Located at 406 Jessop Avenue, the centre has an onsite genealogist and assistant genealogist to assist Metis in tracing family roots and preserving parts of their history. They also formalize and clarify citizenship requirements and aide in the accurate return of statistical data on Metis citizenship.
MN-S President Robert Doucette stated that the opening of the centre symbolizes the continuing reestablishment of the MN-S as a legitimate third order of government leading to the realization of self-governing principles.
