Rooster Town The History of an Urban Métis Community, 1901–1961 (Evelyn Peters, Matthew Stock, and Adrian Werner)
A review of the book Rooster Town: The History of an Urban Métis Community, 1901-1961 authored by Evelyn Peters, Matthew Stock, and Adrian Werner. Review undertaken by Dr. Chantal Fiola.
Drawing upon administrative databases (censuses, voter lists, WWI military records, Manitoba Vital Statistics, building permits and the like), newspaper records, Métis genealogies, scrip records, and interviews with former residents, the authors present a history of Rooster Town (or Pakan Town, the Michif word for hazelnut, as the Métis themselves referred to it) ‒ a community on the fringes of southwest urban Winnipeg composed largely of Métis people who had been dispossessed of their lands in Manitoba.
