Métis Rising draws on a remarkable cross-section of perspectives to tell the histories and stories of people from richly varied backgrounds, demonstrating that there is no single Métis experience – only a common sense of belonging and a commitment to justice.

The contributors to this unique collection, most of whom are Métis themselves, examine often-neglected aspects of Métis existence. They talk about the arduous journey to rebuild the Métis nation from a once-marginalized and defeated people; their accounts ranging from personal reflections on identity to tales of advocacy against poverty and poor housing, and for the recognition of Métis rights.

Métis Rising is an extraordinary work that exemplifies how contemporary Métis identity has been forged into a force to be reckoned with.
