Métis Rising: Living Our Present Through the Power of Our Past is edited by Métis authors Yvonne Boyer and Larry Chartrand. Métis Rising brings together a vibrant collection of essays on history, politics, and culture that celebrate the resilience of Métis identity. Métis Rising presents a cross-section of perspectives to demonstrate that there is no single Métis experience – only a common sense of belonging and a commitment to justice. The contributors to this collection, most of whom are Métis themselves, offer accounts ranging from personal reflections on identity to tales of advocacy against poverty and poor housing, and for the recognition of Métis rights. This book contains 3 b&w illus., 2 maps, 7 charts, 3 tables.
