Item Type: Thesis
Creators: Boucher, Maria-Margaretta Cabana
Abstract:

My research centers an exploration of Métis identity and Michif ways of knowing through a practice-based method of inquiry into beadwork and beaded objects. This thesis document is written in the form of letters written to my daughter and is organized around the idea of building a Michif-self archive by stitching together narrative writing, letters, poems, family histories, and short stories. While reflecting on the many relationships that have held me with care and grounded me within my understanding of my own Michif identity. At its core this research is about love, cultural knowledge transfer, and the practice of remembering and re-remembering past, current, and future ancestors. This document centers my relationship with my daughter as I explore the role of motherhood in relation to Métis culture.
