Becoming Métis

Seven-year-old Tiah has always known she is Metis, but that hasn’t stopped a hundred questions about her heritage. Fortunately, her town is preparing to host Metis Culture Days – a celebration that includes snowshoe racing, bannock making and leg wrestling. It may be too much for a distracted young girl who could get lost in a crowd. Tiah is stronger and more resourceful than she thinks, however, and drawing on her tradition means a brighter ending.
