It was a proud day for the Bazely-Curran Métis family as Arden Curran was the newest family member to receive her Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) citizenship. Arden’s mother Christine Bazley-Curran received her MNO citizenship last summer, following in the footsteps of her mother Kathy Bazley who also holds MNO citizenship.

“It was a very proud day for the three of us and our families,” Kathy says. “Ever since she was a baby and long before her citizenship became official, Arden accompanied me at many Métis cultural events and potlucks.” Arden has also shared information about Métis culture with her school and community groups, her grandmother says.

Kathy says that three generations of women all receiving their MNO citizenship is a source of family pride and a chance to share cultural knowledge. “All three of us wear our sashes with great pride, and will continue to provide information where and when we can about the Métis.”
