Petition for a Reserve
Name of document:
Petition for a Reserve
Type of document:
Primary documentation, petition, National Archives of Canada
Summary of the data:
The Chief (Antoine Morriseau), Second Chief (Batise [Drundles?]) and 'Halfbreed' Chief (John Anenyo) and the people of Pic River petitioned the Governor General in Council for a reserve on June 23, 1880. According to the petition, a large number of people settled at Pic River and many more planned to do so and as a result they requested a reservation. Although the Band had a sizeable population at the time of the Robinson-Superior Treaty, 1850, their Chief was not present at the negotiations and therefore was not awarded a reserve. Please see the important people section for the list of the names of petitioners, some of who are Red Sky Métis Independent Nation™'s founding families or descendants thereof.
Included with the petition was a note authored by J.F. Jamot who requests that the petition be given attention. In Alison Gale's Historical Report she notes that "[n]o response to this petition was located" (36).
