MN–S EASTERN REGION 3 ENGAGES COMMUNITY IN STORY MAPPING HISTORICAL MÉTIS LAND USE
December 10, 2021 — Saskatchewan – Métis Elders and community members from Métis Nation–Saskatchewan (MN–S) Eastern Region 3 (ER3) have created a historical tour of their regional area through interactive story mapping. A combination of maps, text, images, video, audio and other multimedia create this original online narrative and new stand-alone resource sharing the traditions and history of the region. This is evidence of historical Métis land use in the area and will assist with land claims and harvesting rights.

The ER3 mapping project is the initial implementation of a February 2020 commitment by MN–S to mapping our Métis imprint in Saskatchewan. Métis Nation–Saskatchewan intends to expand this initiative and gather evidence of historical Métis land use province-wide.
