Willow Bunch, Saskatchewan

. Census of Canada. Town of Willow Bunch. 2006 The Métis in Willow Bunch “played a key role in maintaining the peace during the time that the Sioux and the other American tribes were forced from the United States into the area of Wood Mountain. Rivard, Ron; Littlejohn, Catherine. "The History of the Metis of Willow Bunch." 2003; Prologue. ” The Métis had a strong relationship with the Sioux, especially with Chief Sitting Bull. “The fires of 1880 on Wood Mountain resulted in the movement of our people to other communities. It was at this time that the Métis pioneers moved to Willow Bunch at the suggestion of Andre Gaudry, (Rivard and Littlejohn) Ibid. ” The Métis were already settled in Willow Bunch when the North West Resistance, led by Louis Riel, battled the Canadian government over land rights. It was in 1885, “the Resistance had an impact on the Métis of Willow Bunch...marked the end of the influence of the Métis on the development of Western Canada. Ibid. ” Within the Métis Nation of Saskatchewan, there are different numbered locals for each area in the province. Willow Bunch is Local #17 with Randy Gaudry as the president. Gaudry has instilled pride in being a Métis within the town of Willow Bunch. Gaudry has been actively involved in fighting for Métis rights for his Local 17. His activism may have stemmed from his late grandfather, Andre Gaudry,one of the eight guiders that took Sioux Chief Sitting Bull back to America due to bad living conditions and starvation. “ They were the guides, scouts, interpreters and security for these trips. Ibid, 143. ” After living away from WIllow Bunch for a time, Gaudry worked hard when he returned to reactivate the Métis Local 17. This meant working between two communities that disconnected years before his return, the Francophone and the Métis. The Local 17 president gathered the two estranged communities to create a dialogue to improve living conditions. “The Francophone community and the Métis community have butted heads for a number of years and there are still problems that have to be ironed out, (noted an article in the Eagle Feather News) Francis, Cherish. The Eagle Feather News. 2008; 14. ” A discussion panel was organized to help build a community connection. Attempts made to improve the lives of the Métis community in Willow Bunch, and to protect cultural artifacts. “SaskPower hired a contractor to construct... and left a right of way to gain access to the construction site and inadvertently drove through one of the teepee rings, damaging it slightly," according to a report in the Saskatoon Star-Phoenix "SaskPower contractor damages historic site".The Star Phoenix. 2010 ” This left the Métis community to act quickly to recover what was left of the damaged site. This action shows the inequality the Métis people faced, which is similar to many First Nations situations when it comes to land reconstruction. Following the 1885 Resistance, many changes occurred for the Métis nation of Willow Bunch. “ They were told that the land property that they settled on didn’t belong to them . It became an issue...as new immigrants arrived they found their identity and culture continually being eroded. Rivard, Ron; Littlejohn, Catherine. "The History of the Metis of Willow Bunch." 229–230. ” The Métis of Willow Bunch still feel the indifference within this small town due to lack of the historical Métis knowledge to the newcomers. “That feeling of inferiority that many of them were taught to feel...That practice of one group being denigrated at the expense of another is still evident today. Ibid. ” The Métis of Willow Bunch will hopefully coexist with the non-Métis community without the idea of superiority over another. Alike to most First Nations situations, the Métis will continue to fight for their rights not only in Willow Bunch but across this nation. The Willow Bunch Métis Local #17 thumb Willow Bunch (File:Metis Local 17.jpg) The Métis Local #17 in Willow Bunch is one of the first Locals established within the Métis Nation of Saskatchewan: “Its mandate is to serve and represent the needs and interests of the Métis people of Willow Bunch and surrounding area, and to coordinate programs and services for the Métis people of this region.” Town of Willow Bunch, n.d.
