It is with great sadness that we mark the passing of Ken Fisher, our President, community
leader, fellow Metis, and Friend.  

He guided Nova Metis Heritage Association since its inception with stature and humility. He never backed down in standing up for the Metis community and being steadfast in representing the Metis people.

Ken Fisher and your beautiful wife Joyce, will both be sorely missed.

Update April 5: Nova Metis received another letter from MNBC, which was hoped would clarify their earlier statements, and we provide a further response.  We ask them to come to the table and carry their responsibility and act with due dilegence to strengthen our Metis communities, as opposed to what seems to be the received intent.

Nova Metis Letter to MNBC - April 5th, 2017



Nova Metis received a letter from MNBC, in their hope, it seems, to stir controversy and incite our members and others to have a poor opinion of our conduct in the Metis community. For a casual reader, and those believing MNBC to be the higher authority, this has probably sown unrepairable doubt. However, for those willing to take the time and read through the letter and our rebuttal attached to this article, our hope is a more reasoned mind will prevail and see it for what it is.
