How were the Metis of the red river self-sufficient?

They do farming. Grow vegetables, and all that food.

Please help?

  • Metis of the Red River - ,

    For which time period are you asking?

    Did they fish or hunt?

    What did they use for housing?

  • Metis of the Red River - ,

    The northwest To 1870.

  • Metis of the Red River - ,

    I think they did fur trading for the NW Company. I think they were farmers too, not sure if they were only part-time farmers.

  • Metis of the Red River - ,

    It doesn't make any difference whether they were full or part-time farmers. They still grew food crops. I'll bet they also hunted and fished to provide protein for their diets.

  • Metis of the Red River - ,

    Yeah it says they hunted the bison, skills that they had learned. Had cows that provided them with milk. Then they traded Pemmican with the NW company.

    So is this what made them self-sufficient
    ?

  • Metis of the Red River - ,

    Right!
