Pt. 1. [1]. Ikwe: A young Ojibwa girl of 1770, Ikwe awakens one night from a disturbing dream about a strange man. The arrival of a young Scottish fur trader transforms her dream into reality. Marrying him, Ikwe leaves her village on the shores of Georgian Bay. Although the union promises prosperity for her tribe, it means hardship and isolation for Ikwe. Values and customs clash until, finally, the events of Ikwe's dream unfold with tragic clarity. [2]. Mistress Madeleine: Set in the 1850's, Mistress Madeleine unfolds against the backdrop of the Hudson's Bay Company's monopoly of the fur trade. In protest, some Metis are trading with the Americans. Madeleine, the Metis common-law wife of a Hudson's Bay Company clerk, is torn between loyalty to her husband and loyalty to her brother, a treetrader. A change in company policy destroys Madeleine's happy, secure life and forces her to re-evaluate her identity -- pt. 2. [3]. Places not our own: By 1929, Canada's West was largely tamed. The land that had been home to generations of Metis was taken over by the railroads and new settlers. The Metis became a forgotten people, relegated to eking out a living as best they could. In Places not our own, Rose Lesperance, a Metis, is determined that her children will have a normal life and education, but the situation is against her. [4]. The wake: Set in contemporary Alberta, The wake is the story of a love affair that blossoms between a well-meaning RCMP officer and a young Metis woman. The Metis have a strong sense of community, but there is also a feeling of separateness. In this atmosphere, the romance offers a new sense of hope
