Summary
Many Métis made their homes on road allowances after the 1885 Resistance. A road allowance is a strip of land, owned by the government and set aside for future roads. In 1935, a major change took place for the Road Allowance Métis with the Prairie Farm Rehabilitation Act. Under this act, community or "co-op" pastures were created in rural areas. It forced many Métis off crown land and off the road allowances. Métis from southern Road Allowance communities were forcibly moved to this northern community. By the late 1940s, there were Métis Farms in Green Lake, Lebret, Baljennie, Crescent Lake, Crooked Lake, Duck Lake, Glen Mary, Lestock, and Willow Bunch. This story views these events from the perspective of a young girl, who is told she must leave behind her kitten as they are forcibly moved to the Metis Farm in Green Lake
