Abstract:

A Thousand Supperless Babes: The Story of the Métis is a dramatic play created by Lon Borgerson and the students attending the SUNTEP at the University of Saskatchewan. This work-in-progress tells the history of the Métis through story, song and dance. The 40-page book provides the script and background information as well as production photographs and cast lists from previous productions. The script and musical score are also provided on the accompanying CD. The music sung by Andrea Menard is also on the CD. The basis for the play is the story of one of Riel's secretaries, Honore Jaxon also known as William Henry Jackson. Through monologues and narration, key events in Métis history are recounted. This play is easily adaptable to the stories of future cast members about their Metis ancestry. A unique method of providing secondary students with a look at the Métis experience in Canadian history.
