Description: This article, written by James Brady, discusses the eventual disintegration of the Métis Colony, St. Paul des Métis in the early 1900s. Founded by Père Albert Lacombe, as a means to for destitute Métis to provide for themselves, the colony was plagued by paternalism, and was abandoned and the land was giving to French-Canadian settlers by the Roman Catholic Church. This article is part of the James Brady Papers, which were donated to the Gabriel Dumont Institute in the 1990s by author and activist, Murray Dobbin. Dobbin used this collection to write his book about James Brady and Malcolm Norris entitled “The One-And-A-Half Men: The Story of Jim Brady & Malcolm Norris, Metis Patriots of the 20th Century”. Transcribed by David Morin and edited by Christine Charmbury and Darren R. Préfontaine. This document has been re-transcribed from the original and includes all spelling and grammatical errors.
