Red Deer Hill Metis Scrip Applications.

Red Deer Hill is south of Prince Albert and north of St. Louis, Saskatchewan. It was settled by Metis in the 1860s and 1870s. The area takes its name from the large hill which in the early days was populated by many elk or red deer. By 1873, the community was experiencing real problems because of the demise of the once large bison herds, and the HBC policy to reduce wages and increase the price of manufactured goods.
