Title: Wilkie, Alexandre
Creator: Barkwell, Lawrence J.
Subject: Wilkie, Alexandre, Métis History
Description: The son of Jean Baptiste Wilkie and Amable Azure, Alexandre Wilkie traveled with the first Métis to found what would become Lewistown, Montana (1879). Wilkie moved back to Belcourt, North Dakota in 1886 to take part in negotiations for the proposed Turtle Mountain reservation. Alexandre, like his father Métis leader Jean Baptiste Wilkie, was concerned about Métis rights to land that they had hunted on for generations. He believed that he could not effectively fight for the recognition of Turtle Mountain Aboriginal land rights from Montana.
