Description

Bead by Bead Constitutional Rights and Métis Community, by Yvonne Boyer, a member of the Métis Nation of Ontario, with ancestral roots in the Métis Nation–Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and the Red River; and Larry Chartrand, Métis and with a foreword by Tony Belcourt.

What does the phrase Métis peoples mean in constitutional terms? As lawyers and scholars dispute forms of Métis identity, and debate the nature and scope of Métis rights under the Canadian Constitution, understanding Métis experience of colonization is fundamental to achieving reconciliation. In Bead by Bead, contributors address the historical denial – at both federal and provincial levels – of outstanding Métis concerns and Aboriginal rights claims, in particular with respect to land, resources, and governance. Tackling such themes as ongoing colonial policies, the invisibility of Métis women in court decisions, identity politics, and racist legal principles, they uncover the troubling issues that plague Métis aspirations for a just future.
