The Red River Metis Fur Company (RRMFC) will be on the road from May 15 to 17, and stopping in various Metis communities to purchase furs from MMF Citizenship Card holding citizens. The RRMFC was established to build up the trapping and fur trading opportunities that once were a traditional way of life for the Red River Metis.
“The RRMFC was established as a community-based fur trading company in Manitoba, by the Manitoba Metis Federation (MMF) in 2021,” said RRMFC Director Jason White. “The MMF is the representative democratic government for the Red River Metis Nation in Manitoba, which is a distinct Indigenous people in Canada with a unique culture, language, and history. The Red River Metis people have a long history of fur trading and have traditionally been involved in the fur industry in Manitoba and across Canada.
