Throughout the 19th century, thousands of immigrants and travellers landed in our ports. Others, however, sailed (or steamed) in the opposite direction, including many Métis and Aboriginal Peoples.
History bears witness to a constant evolution throughout the century in the relations between Aboriginal Peoples, the Métis, and Europe. It is a little known story, particularly disturbing and worthy of attention, rich in lessons, a story sometimes unexpected and often moving.
