Request for Rooster Town Information

I received this comment from Lawrence Barkwell of the Manitoba Metis Federation:

A welcome addition to our knowledge of Winnipeg. The Louis Riel Institute and Institute of Urban Studies are beginning a study on Metis community life in Rooster Town, and wish to contact people who lived there or had relatives living there. Contact Lawrence Barkwell at 586-8474 (ext 298) lbarkwell@mmf.mb.ca to participate.

 In the past I have posted about Rooster Town and what it meant to Winnipeg. There is plenty of misinformation about Rooster Town so it’s good to see someone is trying to clarify the events from this era in the city’s history.
