Description: In 1818, Métis physician and surgeon John Bunn became the first native-born doctor to practice medicine in the Red River Settlement. John was the son of HBC employee Thomas Bunn and his Métis wife Sarah McNab. When he died in 1861 The Nor’Wester newspaper noted “The late Dr. Bunn member of the Council and Sheriff was universally esteemed for unquestionably he was the first and foremost of our magistrates in point of ability. Besides his efficiency as a Civil Officer, his medical services had acquired for him great popularity.”
