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