Description

In Métis Camp Circle: A Bison Way of Life, author and artist Leah Marie Dorion, an interdisciplinary Metis artist raised in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, transports young readers back in time when bison were the basis of Métis lifeways on the Plains. During much of the nineteenth century, bison hunting was integral to the Métis’ social, economic, and political life. As “people of the buffalo,” the Métis were bison hunters par excellence. Vibrantly illustrated and infused with important cultural teachings, this charming book skillfully informs us about this important period of Métis history.
