Northern and Southern Metis Political Organizations Merge into Métis Society of Saskatchewan


In the 1930s the diverse needs of Metis individuals in various areas of the province, coupled with distinct leadership visions and significant geographic distance, resulted in two Metis organizations that represented the Northern and Southern regions of the province, with the dividing line being Saskatoon. In 1967, both groups merged into the pre-existing Métis Society of Saskatchewan, which thenceforth represented both northern and southern regions of the province.

Hypothetically, this unification would provide more cohesion for the Metis of Saskatchewan, and potentially, greater political clout.
