Joseph Francis Dion

...
As a founder of both the Indian Association of Alberta and the Metis Association of Alberta, Joe Dion was a leader for the two peoples with whom he identified. He was born to the Kehiwin Cree band and was educated at the Onion Lake mission school, a Catholic institution. Dion opened the Kehiwin reserve's first school in 1916 and taught there for nearly a quarter-century. Dismayed by the plight of the Metis in Alberta, Dion helped found a provincial association in 1932. His advocacy contributed to a Royal Commission the following year and, eventually, to the Metis Betterment Act. Dion also contributed culturally, organizing a troupe of Metis fiddle dancers who toured the country and helped foster a positive identity for their people. He was instrumental in founding the Indian Association of Alberta in 1944. Dion was also devoted to the Catholic Church, and he was awarded the gold medal "Benemerenti" by Pope Pius XII for his efforts. Dion's writings were published in local newspapers, and his book History of the Cree Indian in Western Canada was published posthumously.
