The family of the Maute family is celebrating 150 years of their existence and it’s hard to miss the Pausens.
They are a family whose roots go back to the Parma, an Indigenous group that is considered to be the last of the Mohawk, and whose ancestors came from the same land.
A family in mourning.
(CBC)The family moved to Manitoba in the 1800s, and after the first settler died they were granted a charter to the land, but they were denied access to it by the government.
The family’s name has changed many times over the years, but the Mautes’ original name is still Pallas.
It’s a title that has always been synonymous with the Maue family.
In 1773, Pallas became the first Indigenous to be granted a seat on the Legislative Council of Manitoba.
His name also became synonymous with a man named William Pallas, a Maute who was appointed to the legislature by Governor Sir John Pallas in 1801.
William Pallas was born on July 4, 1821, and he was the son of a prominent Mohawk chief.
He was an ardent advocate for the rights of his people, and was also an avid sportsman.
The young Pallas’ father was also a prominent lawyer, and they shared a strong bond.
He also knew William, and so William became Pallas’s legal adviser, advising him on a wide range of issues.
William was a highly respected and respected member of his community.
He married and had a daughter, Francesca, who would become the first woman to be elected to the House of Commons.
In the 1800’s, William was a member of the Winnipeg Regiment, which was a militia unit of the Manitoba Militia.
He served in the Manitoba legislature from 1829 to 1836.
He died in 1837, and the family had a house on the edge of the Pest, near the Pomeo Lakes.
In 1842, William Pames was elected to serve as an MLA for the city of Winnipeg.
He made it his career as an advocate for Indigenous rights and as a minister, leading an inquiry into the residential school system in Manitoba.
He would also make it his life’s work to promote reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people in Manitoba and across the country.
William would also champion the rights and needs of the Métis community in Winnipeg, which included the creation of a community storehouse for Indigenous people and the founding of a local Métish school.
The Pallases are still celebrated in Winnipeg.
They were the first family to hold a funeral at the Manitoba Legislature and a commemorative statue of Pallas sits in the city’s Civic Centre.
In the 1960s, the Pameses came under attack from a group of politicians who wanted to take over the Payera House, where William and Francesca lived.
William’s widow, the late Mrs. Francesca Pallas would have had a small child with her.
William, who was also known as John, would later become the prime minister of Canada, and Francesco would continue as the mayor of Winnipeg and a member and former president of the city council.
In 1985, the government passed a law that allowed the Passes to take control of the house and their land.
The Passes, who had lived in Manitoba since the late 1800s and were the custodians of the property, had no legal authority over the property.
They would later appeal the decision to the Supreme Court.
The Mautes fought back and won their case, and on October 19, 1986, the Supreme Judicial Court upheld the decision.
In a landmark ruling, the court said the Crown had no power to take ownership of the land and that the Mauses had no right to claim the property as their own.
The decision has served as a beacon for the Payses in Manitoba, who have been able to maintain the dignity and respect they hold to a part of the heritage of their ancestors, and continue to make the sacrifices necessary to preserve their culture and heritage.
This is the first time in 150 years that the Pairs have had to defend themselves against someone who wants to take their land and say, ‘You don’t own it, I own it.’
That’s a challenge that’s been taken on by a very powerful person, a very prominent person, and that’s the challenge for all Indigenous people in this country.
