Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Based on a 2003 symposium held at the Odawa Native Friendship Centre in Ottawa on the Méteis (mixed race people)-- officially recognized since 1982 as one of Canada's aboriginal peoples, this collection of 13 chapters examines the question of what this legal status means for this "forgotten people." Lischke (English, film studies, and German cultural studies, Wilfrid Laurier U., Waterloo, Ontario, Canada) and McHab (Native studies, York U., Toronto) introduce the historical and contemporary contexts of Méteis identity issues. A paper on Louise Erdrich's life and novels is one of several presenting such issues from a Méteis perspective. The book includes family genealogies and period photographs.

Synopsis:

Known as Canada's forgotten people, the Metis have long been here, but until 1982 they lacked the legal status of Native people. At that point, however, the Metis were recognized in the constitution as one of Canada's Aboriginal peoples. A significant addition to Metis historiography, The Long Journey of a Forgotten People includes Metis voices and personal narratives that address the thorny and complicated issue of Metis identity from historical and contemporary perspectives. Topics include eastern Canadian Metis communities; British military personnel and their mixed-blood descendants; life as a Metis woman; and the Metis peoples ongoing struggle for recognition of their rights, including discussion of recent Supreme Court rulings.
