Join us for a virtual panel discussion about Metis Identity: Race-Shifting, Identity Theft & Protecting Metis Culture.

The last few years has seen the term ‘pretendian’ coined to describe those who claim Indigenous heritage, however these often-prominent figures are outed as culture thieves with no ties to Indigenous communities. What can we do to protect Metis culture and identity? Why is this phenomenon happening and why is the Metis culture so seemingly susceptible?

 

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