Red River Michif Women's Council  
http://www.metiswomen.ca/home/affiliates/manitoba.htm
Red River Michif Women's Council’s purpose is to promote a greater understanding of the traditions and roles of Metis women in the Province of Manitoba. The Red River Michif Women's Council acknowledges the widening gap between Métis women and other women. Métis women who are leaders at the community level provide valuable leadership on ways that their community can positively apply policies and recommendations to make significant change in their lives. As a member of the Métis National Council of Women, there is a growing network, a willingness to share, co-operate and strategize within our province and with other regions. It is important to value, support and learn from those who have taken on the challenge leadership roles at the regional and communities level. This leadership is an asset to Métis women participation and more engaged communities.
