Christine Woodcock - Researching Métis Ancestors
In the late 18th century, Scotsmen traveled to York Factory to work with the HBC. Being indentured for 3-5 years, these men often coupled with Cree women, creating the Métis Nation. HBC’s rival, the Northwest Company, sent their men to the Red River area to trap over the winter months. These men also coupled with the Cree women, adding French blood to the Métis.
