Title: Amyotte, Joe, Interview
Subject: Politics, History, Lifestyles, Education, Houses
Description: Joe was interviewed on August 11, 1977 in Regina Saskatchewan. Joe Amyotte is a southern Métis who was instrumental in organizing the Métis Society of Saskatchewan (MSS) (in the southern part of the province) in 1962-64. There was little, if any, contact between this group and the northern one under Malcolm Norris until 1967 when the two organizations merged. Norris opposed the merger on the grounds that the MSS was too closely tied to the Liberal Party and the Liberal government. He also opposed it because the organization was receiving government grants. Amyotte became the president of the organization and retained that position until 1969 when Howard Adams won the presidency. Joe also discusses in detail education and housing programs.
