Go back in time with us and find out where Métis people first began populating the Canadian landscape. From the Métis origin to the different foods used in cooking and harvesting methods to get the ingredients. Learn the history of Métis dress and beading then have fun with the evolution of the Métis jig, music, and art.
Discover the origins of the Michif language and the work that is being done to preserve it in Canada.
These resources and activities can be shared in classrooms, land-based learning and community events. As we listen to Métis Knowledge Keepers and the whispers and laughter of our children, Métis knowledge, stories and pride is passed down to future generations. Strong and confident – awaayna niiyaa.
Métis people are grounded in community, value and tradition.
Something special happens when Métis people come together in celebration.
