Métis Politics and Governance in Canada

At a time when the Métis are becoming increasingly visible in Canadian politics, this timely book offers a practical guide for understanding who they are and the challenges they face on the path to selfgovernment. It shows how the Métis are giving life to Louis Riel's vision of a selfgoverning Métis Nation through the ongoing application of principles of governance that emerged during the fur trade era. Drawing on the Métis language – Michif – Kelly Saunders and Janique Dubois demonstrate how the Métis have adapted their governance structures within the Canadian state context to meet the everyday needs of Métis citizens.
