Introducing Métis culture through a series of eight traditional tales retold by Nathalie Bertin. These charming and entertaining short stories provide a broad snapshot of the Métis world view from historical communities in Ontario and Quebec that pre-date Canadian confederation. These regions have a long history of métissage and unique cultural flavour that also helped inform western Métis culture. The unique beadworks that accompany each story are beautifully photographed and provide a contemporary stepping point into the tremendous historical Métis crafts – designs that became Canada’s first true art form. Entertainment and learning in two languages within the pages of a single book!
