Marie Louise Falcon

- Carol Vulliamy




Marie Louise Falcon- 1881

 

 

Marie Louise was a small child during the Rebellion of 1885.

Worried looks, hushed conversations, daily plans to contrive.

Uncle Onesime owns a River Lot. He says, “They’ll take it away!”

I don’t understand but I feel scared; we may die the adults say.

 

Uncle Athanase joined the Rebellion of 1885, the battle to win.

Metis were scattered and shattered; nothing where homes had been.

Like many of the Metis people, they moved west and north-

Batoche was no place to stay. Metis were left hiding with no recourse.

 

Conversations mumbled, “the Metis may conceal their race.”

French Canadian is safer; their land titles will not erase.

As with all tragedy, the pain fades and life moves forward.

Marie Louise met Joseph Landry; finding love straightforward.

 

In time they received Scrip and felt they did belong.

We have a new life; our buffalo hunts forever are gone.

We have grandchildren now who brighten our days

Gilbert lovingly recalls doing jobs for granny “for pay.”
