Michif Metis Museum - Surrey
notes from Mom
I bet if you asked around your circle of friends, at least one will have
a Metis heritage. I would never have guessed our friend, Randy, is
Metis because he has blonde hair. I was embarrassed to admit I knew
very little about Metis history and culture. Randy told us about
the Michif Metis Museum in Surrey. Metis was the name given in Canadian
history to children born from Native Indian mothers and European fathers.
Michif is the language which evolved in the 1700's between the European
traders and the Cree/Algonkian speakers. The Metis museum has more
details, plus a replica of a typical Metis home.
The Michif Metis Museum located at 10707 King George Highway, Surrey.
