Vice-President

Ed Dandenault

(604)703-9701, opiedandy@gmail.com

I have been a member of the Chilliwack Métis association since 2014 and president from October, 2015-October 2017. 

 

My great, great grandfather was Isadore Dumont Jr. He was Gabriel Dumonts oldest brother. During the battle of Duck Lake, Isadore and a Cree headman were killed by a NWMP interpreter. These were the opening shots of the 1885 resistance.

 

Together we will build a vibrant, self sustaining, family oriented Métis community and cultural center using Métis culture, education, social enterprise and strong family values as the building blocks.

 

United we can do this!

Youth Director

Fergus Dalton

I joined the Chilliwack Métis Association in 2017, but I hope in my role as Director of Youth to bring our youth out of hiding and into our community to contribute to, learn, and live our culture. While I have only been with the CMA a short while, I have learned much about Métis culture in every aspect I can, notably through my experience in jigging, and continue to do everything I can to learn more. I believe that by engaging our youth in cultural activities, sport, and leadership we can pave the way for the leaders of tomorrow.
