MeTis in Canada : History, Identity, Law and Politics, Paperback / softback Book

MeTis in Canada : History, Identity, Law and Politics Paperback / softback

Edited by Christopher Adams, Gregg Dahl, Ian Peach


These twelve essays constitute a groundbreaking volume of new work prepared by leading scholars in the fields of history, anthropology, constitutional law, political science, and sociology, who identify the many facets of what it means to be Metis in Canada today.

After the Powley decision in 2003, Metis people were no longer conceptually limited to the historical boundaries of the fur trade in Canada.

Key ideas explored in this collection include identity, rights, and issues of governance, politics, and economics.

The book will be of great interest to scholars in political science and native studies, the legal community, public administrators, government policy advisors, and people seeking to better understand the Metis past and present.
