The kinship of our people. We are all related. Our families are all related through the intermarriages of our community members. We are all kin from Paddle Prairie Metis Settlement. Our mother and grandmothers were the ones who introduced us to our relatives, and informed us of who our kin were and how we were related, and helped us understand those kinship ties.
Our Mothers and Grandmothers were resilient, knowledgeable, innovative and skilful in how they raised their families in this remote northern community. They raised their families to follow in their footsteps, and to be innovative and creative . Our mothers and grandmothers were role models in leadership and showed examples of how to be good leaders, and not to be afraid to move beyond the boundary of the community. They also expected us to be resilient, and strong, and to work hard and reach for our dreams.
