Yes he would considered metis as his grandmother Marie Miteouamigoukoue was an Algonquin Native American who married a French Voyageur by the name of Pierre COUC formerly LAFLEUR.

The evidence demonstrates that he is Catholic Metis by birth. He is a Voyageur because he was under several legal license fur trading contracts. On his father side he has French roots.
