Joseph Dion returned to open the first school on the Kehewin reserve in 1915. According to Dion’s book, My Tribe the Crees (1979), he began teaching in March 1916 but quit after three years, frustrated by the lack of teaching supplies provided by the federal government. Later, he returned and taught there for 24 years. In the 1920s, Joseph Dion began to get involved with treaty and non-status Indigenous organizations. As with fellow Métis leaders and activists Jim Brady and Malcolm Norris, Dion’s political work was fuelled by the destitute lives of non-status Indians and Métis, who had no stable land base in Alberta.

Joseph Francis Dion (1888 - 1960) was born in Onion Lake Indian Reserve in July of 1888. Dion's time at the school gave him a chance to write a book titled " My Tribe the Crees". Dion was a devoted leader of the Metis people throughout his lifetime. He Married Elizabeth Cunningham of St. Albert in 1912 and three years later opened a school on Kehewin Indian Reserve. At this school he taught for twenty-four years where he loved to work with native children.

The book has historical value, and it is interesting in its own right, but don't expect detailed histories of the Sioux, Arickaras, Assiniboines, Crees, and Crows. Denig knew these tribes through experience, and what he does is give a short ethnography of each tribe, writing about the boundaries and geography of their territories, what they eat, who they fight, who the leaders are, an interesting story or two, and so forth.
