The Story of Scrip

Recent years have seen Manitoba’s founding Nation – the Metis – come to national prominence.

However, many Manitobans are not familiar with this important history of the land they live on. Where did the Metis come from? What was Scrip? How was Scrip used as a tool of colonization? What role did Scrip play in the diaspora of the Metis Nation? William Benoit combs the threads of Manitoba’s history in his unique storytelling way.

William Benoit is the Advisor for Internal Indigenous Engagement in the Office of the Deputy Librarian and Archivist of Canada at Library and Archives Canada.

Metis Kitchen Table Teachings is a virtual series dedicated to the transmission of Metis knowledge and culture.
