YORKTON — A traditional land-use study is underway to discover how deep Metis roots run in Southeastern Saskatchewan.

Researchers hope to trace the movements of the Metis peoples using interactive maps and storyboards, in partnership with Parks Canada and X-Terra.

“This is allowing us to really dig a deep dive into that Metis footprint in that area.

He added that although much is already known, there is lots more that to be discovered.
