Beverley Worsley Collection

Worsley, Beverley Collection

Bev Worsley (1946-2015) was a long-time Saskatchewan Métis activist from the Qu’Appelle Valley in Saskatchewan.  For many years, she was the Métis Nation—Saskatchewan (MN—S)’s area director for Eastern Region III.  A tireless volunteer, she was involved with the Ka-Pa-Chee Training Centre in Fort Qu’Appelle, Saskatchewan and with various MN—S affiliates.  Having many uncles from the Fayant side of her family serve with the Canadian military, she was worked closely with Métis veterans to obtain more benefits and recognition.   Bev Worsley was an avid collector of Métis-specific resources and she donated much of her collection, including books, artifacts, newspaper clippings, MN—S minutes meetings, and various ephemera to the Gabriel Dumont Institute in 2012.
