The Gabriel Dumont Institute is honoured that the family of Roy Poitras wishes to honour his life by suggesting those who would like to make a donation in his memory do so through a fund that will be used to preserve and promote Michif, Roy’s first language. Roy was a Michif speaker and advocate who will be greatly missed. He has helped others learn Michif and he always had a story or two that would frequently leave those in his presence enjoying his humour and storytelling.
Those who wish to make a donation have the option of making it in $5 increments to the desired level.* The Institute is grateful for the donations and we will confirm each one with both the donors and the Poitras family. Maarsii to the Poitras family for honouring Roy, and all those who wish to learn Michif, this way.
*Donations amounting to $20.00 and over are eligible for a charitable receipt.
