"We’ve never been conquered, we never surrendered, and no Métis Leader ever consented to being governed by someone else. Our political authority is just as legitimate today as it always has been. We are still a free and independent people. Canada has an obligation to fulfil its treaty obligations with the Métis people. "
Adam Gaudry, Métis Ph.D Candidate in Indigenous Governance at University of Victoria, speaking to my class today
