KIAS working with RCMR on Métis in the Courts rapid response project

What’s all the uproar with the Métis in the Courts?

What we’re doing: A rapid response collaboration between the Rupertsland Centre for Métis Research (RCMR) and the Kule Institute for Advanced Study (KIAS) research institute.

Several important Métis rights issues have come before the Canadian courts recently – among the most long-anticipated is the Manitoba Métis Federation case against the Canadian government for the loss of their lands under sections 31 and 32 of the Manitoba Act of 1870.

The rapid response website includes:

Over the next week we’ll continue posting interviews with key University of Alberta experts and other Métis scholars including: Eric Adams, Catherine Bell, Adam Gaudry and Frank Tough.

Who we are:

RCMR is an academic research program focused on Métis concerns. Part of the mandate of the RCMR includes building the capacity to conduct systematic research and critical analysis of the impacts of general government policies on Métis communities. The RCMR has built into its architecture a “think tank” emphasis, which will allow it to tackle questions important to Métis society in a scholarly, non-partisan way.
