Olympic Metis Partner MNBC Shuts Olympic Door to Vancouver Metis Artist
Vancouver Metis Artist Mark MiLan has been shut out to Olympic opportunities as he stands alongside his 2600 member Vancouver Metis Community Association, whom are not one of MNBC chartered community.
Mark MiLan is now appealing to the greater Canadian Metis audience to offer its support in supporting his project outside the Olympic fence, so the World can see to experience true grassroots Metis art and accessories. More information about this Metis cultural project can be viewed at milanart.ca. Show your support/pride of being Metis and please get involved to ensure these Games are not held for ransom by political groups.
60,000 people self-identify in BC as Metis in census 2007, and only 4,000 are registered MNBC members. So, take your place and have a voice about how the Metis are involved for the 2010 Olympics. Write your government officials and demand to know why after more than five years since the announcement of the 2010 Vancouver Olympics is there no meaningfull Metis participation.
