The Métis have always been a political people. Kelly Saunders and Janique Dubois draw on interviews with Elders, leaders, and community members to reveal how the Métis are giving life to Louis Riel's vision of a self-governing Métis Nation within Canada. They look to the Métis language--Michif--to identify Métis principles of governance that emerged during the fur trade era and that continue to shape Métis governing structures. Both then and now, the Métis have engaged in political action to negotiate their place alongside federal and provincial partners in Confederation. As Canada engages in nation-to-nation relationships to advance reconciliation, this book provides timely insight into the Métis Nation's ongoing struggle to remain a free and self-governing Indigenous people."--"@en ;
