My wife asked me to relay to you the proper spelling of the Nation that she was referring to. I think that you should research some of the Canadian Metis record and sites. You can search the web under Native Americans and also under Metis nations. The Metis are a Nation of thier own. They are descendants of marriages between Native women and European trappers and hunters. The word "METIS" means mixed blood. If you have any questions, feel free to write us and ask.

for some of my families, i found the book called"THE GENEALOGY OF THE FIRST METIS NATION"by FRYE- to be very helpful- reflects families from `1790-1870- quebec- red river metis, church affiliation- has swampy cree listing-hudson bay voyagers- you might like to try finding it thru any large book store-homestead records for sask-have numerous part blood people listed. best wishes,pat .

hello, i have ancestors that are from canada and had migrated to michigan the relative I found in michigan was named francis dupray/dupre' born abt.1763, married Catherine Roy abt. 1788, she was born in detroit abt. 1767, my family tells a story of being frenchcanadian and indian, but my grandmother had no knowledge of her family aside from her father who was named Edward,
however I found much information doing the families geneology, but, having trouble finding indian heritage, we know that the family was from early detroit and that the names are listed in a few books from that time ie; The early french settlers of the detroit river region,then family members migrated to brown co. Wi. (once mighigan territory) family listed in the book "The French Creoles of Wis." title's listed are not exact( can,t remember them) but, anyway this book lists all mixed bloods, mostly
menomonee's but,says that my ggg-grandma was indian ,not menomonee, her name was Elizabeth Yackopinon, and the michigan book lists her as saulteuse , someone told me that this was a name for a chippewa tribe, I sure could use some help finding her, so much what to a need to find out who my family was, looked through passages about early fur traders but, noted that Jean Baptiste Dupray (Francis and Catherines son)
who married agatha witterick( daughter of Elizabeth Yackopnion and Peter Witterick,
was not a fur trader, but, a school teacher, this is the family line lised in wisconsin Creole's, can you help me find more info.?
