    Many Metis in the Red River Area have adopted this song as their Metis Anthem song. We wish to thank the lady who originally wrote and sang it. I believe she is from Saskatchawan or Alberta.

    Red Wing is one of the most well-known Canadian, Old-Time or Bluegrass fiddle tunes. Depending on the player, this tune can be either really simple or super-complex. Patti Kusturok keeps it pretty simple in this performance until she throws a little swing in towards the end.

  • Mountain Metis Music

    6:18

    The Muskeg River band has developed this promotional video about the songs that were written to describe the Forced Migration of the Mountain Metis. This took place in 1909 and 1910 from Jasper National Park. Songs were written by song writer Laura Vinson.

    Al Findlay is a descendant of Jacco Findlay, one of the pioneer Metis who helped the North West Company open up Canada's trade routes. Laura Vinson is descended from Tete Jaune (Yellowhead) who was also an early employee of the Hudson Bay Company. The Yellowhead Highway is named in his honour.

  • Day 35 - “Grey Owl” - Patti Kusturok’s 364 Days of Fiddle Tunes

    2:19

    Here’s a great tune written by John Arcand, the Master of the Métis Fiddle. I love all of Johnny’s tunes and this one has become a classic.

    According to Wikipedia, Grey Owl was the name British-born Archibald Belaney chose for himself when he started pretending to be a First Nations person.

    Up near the Emma Lake Fiddle Camp, there was a housing development called Grey Owl Estates, and I believe Johnny wrote this tune during one of the very first years of that fiddle camp.

    Jeremy Rusu does a wonderful job on the guitar.

    Wikipedia entry for Metis in case your curious.

    The Métis (/meɪˈtiː/; Canadian French: [meˈtsɪs]; Michif: [mɪˈtʃɪf]) are one of the recognized Aboriginal peoples in Canada. They trace their descent to mixed First Nations and European heritage. The term was historically a catch-all describing the offspring of any such union, but within generations the culture syncretised into what is today a distinct aboriginal group, with formal recognition equal to that of the Inuit and First Nations. Mothers were often Cree, Ojibwe, Algonquin, Saulteaux, Menominee, Mi'kmaq or Maliseet.[3] At one time there was an important distinction between French Métis born of francophone voyageur fathers, and the Anglo-Métis or Countryborn descended from English or Scottish fathers. Today these two cultures have essentially coalesced into one Métis tradition. Other former names—many of which are now considered to be offensive—include Bois-Brûlés, Mixed-bloods, Half-breeds, Bungi, Black Scots and Jackatars.

    The Métis homeland includes regions scattered across Canada, as well as parts of the northern United States (specifically Montana, North Dakota, and northwest Minnesota).
