This chapter traces the development of métis “protection” programs in relation to the formation of the colonial state. The métis protection system developed out of a sense of urgency to stem the supposed debauched influences of indigenous society and indigenous mother, and to prevent the development of a disaffected class of métis who would potentially grow to resent the colonial state.
