Métis Elders and Veterans
Please be advised that the Gabriel Dumont Institute does not conduct genealogical research. Basic information—such as enlistment dates, service numbers, wars served etc.—relating to Métis veterans whose names have been engraved on the National Métis Veterans Monument were provided by community members. Therefore, the Institute does not have any further information about the veterans other than what appears on the monument.
There are some Gabriel Dumont Institute resources that may have some information relating to Métis veterans that you may consult. These include:
Cathy Littlejohn’s book, Métis Soldiers of Saskatchewan (https://www.metismuseum.ca/resource.php/149740).
