Indigenous Background

Through this genealogical research, Robert can directly trace his lineage back to the Métis families of Cadotte, Pelletier, Beachemin and Morin from the Red River Settlement in Manitoba. The Métis families Robert descends from had genuine ties to Canada's early fur trade history as they were employed by both historical institutions of the North West Company and Hudson Bay Company.

Members of the Cadotte family were early explorers of Western Canada. By 1761, they had already operated in the fur trade for at least three generations.

Robert embodies Métis values and attributes through having over four decades of hunting, fishing, and animal tracking experience. His previous company, Eagle Drilling Services Ltd., had an emphasis on involving Indigenous members in its operations as 20 percent of its staff were Indigenous, as well as having a 100 percent Indigenous Board of Directors.
