  4. 4. MÉTIS Métis: Canada’s First Peoples descended of marriages to Europeans, mainly French. The Métis are one of three officially recognized Aboriginal Peoples in Canada.4
  5. 5. UR HISTORYFor thousands of years, Canada’s First Peoples woreMukluks and Moccasins as they thrived in harmony withnature. As European settlers arrived, they also began toadopt our traditional Native footwear as a necessarytool for survival. 1630 The North American fur trade leads to the birth of a new people – The Metis 1630-1870 The Metis establish their own identity, with traits of both Native and European people. 1870 Metis leader Louis Riel presides over Manitoba becoming a province of Canada. 1991 Métis siblings Sean and Heather McCormick establish a trading post in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Native artisans trade handmade mukluks and moccasins with the McCormick’s for their tanned leather skins and furs. 1997 The McCormicks register a Canadian corporation and begin manufacturing Native footwear. 2006 Hollywood stars are photographed wearing the company’s products, creating demand from all corners of the world. 2008 Manitobah Mukluks’ global brand office established in Canada’s Capital Region. International sales partnerships are created to meet growing demand. 2009 Manitobah Mukluks partners with Vibram™ to develop a high-abrasion sole for the urban market. Media worldwide feature the company’s products alongside international fashion brands. 5
  6. 6. STORY BOOTS O R I G I N A L S Name: Annie Madeleine Mckay Heritage: Cree from Misepawistik (Grand Rapids, Manitoba, Canada) Mukluks handmade by Annie Madeleine Mckay, 1931-1999.6
  7. 7. PRESERVING TRADITIONAL ART We believe traditional arts play a vital role in helping Native communities achieve self-sufficiency. To promote this, our Artisan Program adds value to footwear that has been in Native families for generations. We call these StoryBoots. From each family’s original, we make a limited collection of StoryBoot and offer them to a global audience. With each Story-STORY Boot sold, a family shares in the profits and realizes economic benefits that would other-BOOTS wise not exist. It is our dream to help every Native community benefit from the traditions of their ancestors in this way.L I M I T E DE D I T I O N SStoryBoots Limited Editionsare available as part of ourArtisan Program. CANADIAN ABORIGINAL COMMUNITIES 7
  8. 8. OUR SOLEWhen it came time to develop footwear for the city,we challenged Vibram™, the world leader in high-performance rubber soles, to design a sole thatcould withstand the effects of cold and high-abrasion urban environments (min 150NBS).Vibram™ used 70 years of history and rugged TC1compound to provide a durable, low-profile sole,which allowed us to build quality and traditioninto every step.8
  9. 9. “This sole tells a story of my people.” ART OF OUR SOLE Native artist Heather Steppler teamed with Vibram™ to create a sole that honours our tradition. The Sky represents life-giving water falling as rain and snow. To the right are the western mountains. Trees to the left of the tipi represent the Woodland People. The Vibram™ logo is the new doorway we walk through together as modern hunter-gatherers. The Fire tells us that First Peoples will always survive. Behind it are prairie plains, home to the Great Horse and Buffalo People. The swirling Four Winds cleanse in a circular motion, as the Sun circles our Mother Earth. Name: Heather Steppler Heritage: Wolf Clan from Peter Ballantyne Cree Nation 9
  10. 10. SHEEPSKIN STEP INTO SOFTNESS. Some footwear companies offer sheepskin in-soles, others offer sheepskin trim. At Manitobah, the entire footbed of all our mukluks are wrapped in 100% sheepskin. Slip into one of our sheepskin-lined mukluks or moccasins and feel the difference natural quality makes. Warm in winter, cool in summer. Breathes naturally. Environmentally safe. FUR10 MUKLUKS

  18. 18. MÉTISBEADW RK The Métis People wove floral art patterns into the lives of most tribes on the Northern Plains. These designs became a defining cultural symbol for us. For this reason, the Dakota Sioux and Cree called us the “Flower Beadwork People.” Métis women had always adorned tipis and clothing with geometric beadwork, but the patterns changed when Roman Catholic missions along the St. Lawrence River introduced the Métis to European folk art. By the 1830s, vibrant floral designs were found on most of our products. Floral beadwork reached unrivaled levels of artistry throughout the Red River region during the mid-nineteenth century. With great pride we offer mukluks and moccasins that reflect our unique artistic heritage.18

  41. 41. CARING FOR YOURMANITOBAH FOOTWEARProtection: Use only clear leather / suede protector.Do not spray fur, as it contains natural protective oils.To Clean: Leather can be cleaned using a gentle soapand soft brush.To Dry: Once wet, allow your footwear to dry naturally.Wear: Never pull fur when putting on or removing boot.Cross laces over before tightening to avoid tearing leathereye holes. HOW TO CUSTOM FIT YOUR CREPE SOLE Crepe is a natural material that forms to the shape of your foot. Over time, a crepe sole will feel a part of you. To encourage the rubber to form faster, follow these steps. 1. Heat soles with a blow-dryer until soft and flexible (approx. 10 minutes). 2. Wear your mukluks as the crepe sole cools. 41
