Description

Rekindling the Sacred Fire: Métis Ancestry and Anishinaabe Spirituality by Chantal Fiola, Métis Anishinaabe-Kwe from the Red River region of Manitoba, interviews people with Métis ancestry, or an historic familial connection to the Red River Métis, who participate in Anishinaabe ceremonies. These interviews provide stories about family history, self-identification, and their relationships with Aboriginal and Euro-Canadian cultures and spiritualities. This study seeks to understand the historical suppression of Anishinaabe spirituality among the Métis and its more recent reconnection that breaks down the colonial divisions between their cultures. Chantal Fiola teaches Native Studies at the University of Manitoba.
