Metis Pioneers : Marie Rose Delorme Smith and Isabella Clark Hardisty Lougheed - (Paperback)
About this item
In &i&Metis Pioneers&/i&, Doris Jeanne MacKinnon compares the survival strategies of two Metis women born during the fur trade—one from the French-speaking free trade tradition and one from the English-speaking Hudson’s Bay Company tradition—who settled in southern Alberta as the fur trade transitioned to a sedentary agricultural and industrial economy. MacKinnon provides rare insight into their lives, demonstrating the contributions Metis women made to the building of the prairie west. This is a compelling tale of two women's acts of quiet resistance in the final days of the British Empire.
