Métis National Anthem
 

In the forest, on the river,
And across the western plain,
As the white man journeyed westward,
To the land of the Indian,
A new race was created, 
A new Nation rose up strong,
Hardship as its destiny,
And its curse to not belong.

In the land from which they came,
In the land they helped to build,
They found themselves the alien,
Found their vision unfulfilled,
And despite their valiant effort,
To defend what they believe,
When at last the battle ended,
They were only left to grieve.

We are proud to be Métis
Watch our Nation rise again
Never more forgotten people
We’re the true Canadian.

From across the plain they travelled,
From Red River to the Peace,
Looking for their own homeland,
That would help them to replace,
All the land that had been taken,
And the dreams that had been dashed,
Their brave heroes, now called traitors, 
And courageous deeds now past.
But their spirit was not broken, 
And their dreams had never died,
Their determination strengthened,
Even while the people cried,
As they waited for the battle,
That would end their years of pain.
And the final bloodless battle,       
When the Nation rose again.

We are proud to be Métis
Watch our Nation rise again
Never more forgotten people
  We’re the true Canadian.

For this newest generation,
And the future ones to come,
With the past to motivate us
It will help to keep us strong,
As we build the Métis Nation,
As we watch it rise again,
Our past lost its motivation
To inspire our future again.

We are proud to be Métis
Watch our Nation rise again
Never more forgotten people
We’re the true Canadian.
