If asked what is the most important aspect of his life, Earl without hesitation will answer, my family. Born and raised in St Eustache Manitoba, Earl has a long Métis lineage. His Mom and Dad, Pearl and Paul, are long time residents of St. Eustache and continue to live in this vibrant Métis community. Earl and his wife Gloria have been married for thirty-three years, raising two kids Corry and Christina, and have one grandchild named Paul.

Earl has worked as a journeyman pipe fitter for the last eighteen years at the Crofton Pulp and Paper mill and Gloria is a Commercial Management Accountant, working for Hayes Forest Services for fourteen years. They raised their family in Duncan on Vancouver Island.

Show Host

In 1954, in Edmonton Alberta, Dale Rodney Haggerty was the fifth child Born, to parents John Haggerty, a Scottish immigrant and French Métis Mother, Georgina Villeneuve. The Haggerty’s moved their growing family to B.C. when Dale was just an infant and youngest at that time, his sister Teresa was born later in Vancouver where the family lived and worked most of their lives.

As President of the Society, Dale’s future hope and plans for the museum is to continue sharing the Métis culture as long as he is able and when he is ready to retire (which won’t be for a while yet), the museum will be placed safely in the hands of our future Métis generation who will continue to bring and present the Métis culture and history to all that would benefit and have an interest & now its time to reach to even more of our Aboriginal brother s & sisters across the world. Our very own internet talk radio show called 'Metis Voices Radio' every Friday night 8pm pst on station 2 . Dale is looking forward to your callins as he talks about Metis history and many other Metis programming.
