A Moment in History: Métis Nation of Alberta Ratifies Constitution with 96.9% 'Yes' Vote
After years of review and discussion, the Métis Nation of Alberta - also known as MNA, made the announcement on 27 September 2022 that the Otipemisiwak Métis Government Constitution was ready to go to a vote. The voting period took place from November 1st to 30th.
“We are the Otipemisiwak, the people who govern themselves. Our ancestors are watching; our time is now,” said Audrey Poitras, President, Métis Nation of Alberta.
The Métis community cast their votes in-person, via mail and online in the largest Indigenous voting event in Canadian history, which OneFeather is honoured to have supported.
