Throughout history, Canada's First Peoples wore mukluks and moccasins as they thrived in harmony with nature. As European settlers arrived, they too adopted our traditional footwear as a necessary tool for survival.
The North American fur trade leads to the birth of a new people - The Métis.
The Métis establish their own identity, with traits of both Aboriginal and European people.
Manitoba becomes a province of Canada; Métis artisans supply handmade goods for emerging markets.
Métis siblings Sean and Heather McCormick establish a trading post in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Aboriginal artisans trade handmade mukluks and moccasins for the McCormicks' tanned leather skins and furs.
The McCormicks register a Canadian corporation and begin manufacturing Aboriginal footwear.
Hollywood stars are photographed wearing the company's products, creating interest from all corners of the world.
Manitobah Mukluk's global brand office is established in Canada's Capital Region. International sales partnerships are created to meet growing demand.
Manitobah Mukluks partners with Vibram™ to develop a high-abrasion sole for the urban market and launches a project to create business-building partnerships with elders and artists in Aboriginal communities.
