    Summary Information:
    The North Slave Metis Alliance (NSMA) was formed in 1996 in order to strengthen the cultural and political identity of the Indigenous Metis peoples of the Northern Great Slave area. North Slave Metis were closely associated with Fort Rae located on the northern part of the Great Slave Lake. The fort functioned as an important provisioning post for the traders of the Mackenzie-Great Slave Lake-Athabasca area. The North Slave Metis Alliance now seeks to transform the fort into a cultural and historical centre. The North Slave Metis was a signatory to the 1920 Dogrib Treaty 11. The NSMA is a non-profit organisation whose central mandate is to represent the interests of the direct descendants of the Metis of the North Slave Region of the Northwest Territories. It objectives include:
  • To negotiate and implement a land and resources agreement founded on the principles of self-government;
  • To promote the educational, economic, social and cultural development of the members of the North Slave Region and the Treaty 11 Area.
