Henry Howse Jr

- Carol Vulliamy




 

Henry Howse- 1831- Grandson of Joseph Howse

 

Henry was born as Metis culture was unfolding.

Furs to trap and trade were life’s blood holding.

Life was harsh; food and shelter were a gamble

Many lessons learned lest life become a shamble.

 

Henry grew up in Fort Victoria- Metis Heartland

Thirteen siblings taught him about a strong stand

With rebellion close by, safety was not guaranteed

Henry learned good-will; violence was not his creed.

 

In time Henry received a Government Scrip for land

To refocus from furs to farming was the Metis plan.

Moving in search of buffalo was no longer an option.

The white man’s plan was now certain for adoption.

 

Nellie came along; a Metis husband was her song

We’ll marry and have children grow big and strong

Thirteen children born; a happy family acquired

Howse numbers growing; they continue to be admired.
