Known for his quick wit and joie de vivre, Harry Daniels (1940-2004) was a force to be reckoned with. The politician, activist, writer and actor from Regina Beach, Saskatchewan, successfully led an effort to have the Métis included as one of the Indigenous Peoples recognized in the Constitution Act, 1982, and as Indians under the British North America Act, 1867, placing them under federal jurisdiction. The photo on the stamp, taken at a press conference in 1998, shows Daniels in his trademark Métis bison-hunting hat. In the background is the Métis sash that was presented at his funeral by the Métis National Council.
Proud advocates for the rights and well-being of their people, the three modern-day Indigenous leaders in this inaugural series are honoured for dedicating their lives to preserving Métis, First Nations and Inuit culture and improving the quality of life of Indigenous Peoples in Canada.
The second set of stamps in the Indigenous Leaders series honours three Métis, First Nations and Inuit leaders whose tireless efforts to protect the rights, culture and welfare of their people had a profound influence on Canada’s history.
