Long before Canada was a country, the Métis Nation was a sovereign nation with its own laws and systems of government. The Métis are one of three Indigenous peoples with inherent rights living in Canada. Their distinct way of life incorporates aspects of both Indigenous and European cultures and a unique Indigenous language called Michif. This short program examines the Métis sash, floral bead work, traditional dress, Métis flags, and the importance of fiddle music and dances.
