About years ago, buffalo were still roaming freely across the Western Canadian prairie, an area which was known at the time as the North-West. The Metis loved to travel across the prairie and hunt buffalo. The buffalo provided the Metis with most of what they needed in order to maintain their way of life.
What this post and those previous two have in common, is that they are about identity. The topic of Status was a much easier discussion, because I avoided delving into identity issues in order to give you the bare bones legislative context.
This is probably going to leave you with more questions than answers, but I do hope that your perception of the question itself will have shifted.
If I have any academic readers, I apologise in advance for bringing up debates or issues that some academics think are settled, or should be moved past. Whether or not I agree, the fact is that most Canadians have not been a part of these mostly internal discussions.

You mean, what is the definition I use for myself and thus present as the definition all others must live by? Oh come on, are any identity issues that easily navigated, even Louis riel bio an individual level?
Often we were referred to in the Prairies as the Road Allowance People. You can imagine how confusing it is in terms of forming an identity, to be known by so many ill-defined names. What I knew but did not understand, is that we were related to pretty much everyone in Alberta, lots of people in Saskatchewan and a bunch of people in northern BC.

Take this photo for example. The history of these families is a major part of the history of Alberta, yet I never learned about it in school. As do many of us, which never ceases to make my partner laugh. What links us is our history, and our present sense of kinship and community.
Some of us are closer to our Cree and Stoney relations than others. You should be asking yourself why it even matters that you have a definition for us.
The Supreme Court of Canada heard a case involving a father and son who shot a moose out of season and without a license.
Well…it turned out to be exciting. For the first time, it gave us a basic legal definition besides half-Indian, half-European to discuss. So much in there to unpack and debate! So many more questions than answers! You can be one or the other legally, but not both! That would be double-dipping…or something.
It is, but what identity issues are simple? The first objection usually takes the form of a challenge rooted firmly in racialization: We are not a soup kitchen for those disenfranchised by past and present Canadian Indian policy and, as such, although we should sympathize with those who bear the brunt of this particular form of dispossession, we cannot do so at expense of eviscerating our identity.
I chafe at the necessity of playing this game at all, where our identities and our rights continue to be defined by the Canadian courts and the Canadian state. This is a good resourcefor example, though it is loooooong! Now you know a little about those different views, which will certainly help you navigate the wealth of information out there.
You can also read some of the books I linked to above for both contemporary and historical views. Essentially, you can be interested, and like any topic you are interested in, you can start digging.
