Description: What does it mean to be Métis? A legal definition exists, but does that represent such a diverse nation of people who all come from different blends of European and Indigenous heritage and from all over Turtle Island? Outside of the historical photos of Louis Riel, jigging, fiddling and sashes - how do contemporary Métis peoples express their identity? Misconceptions about who we are as people can be drawn back to the lack of Métis voices, especially within Femme and Two-Spirit representation, telling our own stories. In an attempt to reclaim our own stories, over the course of a few months I spoke with four other Métis people (Jessie Loyer, Del Monte, Monica Gherig and Louis Langlois) about their own family histories, Métis nationalism and how each of them struggle to express and articulate their identity.
