Mark of the Métis: Traditional Knowledge and Stories of the Métis Peoples of Northeastern Alberta
The “Mark of the Métis” was created to preserve the rich history and cultural traditions of the Métis people of northern Alberta. The stories of 104 elders who have lived and worked in the area are captured through interviews conducted by the Fort McMurray Métis Local 1935. The Elders tell their stories in their own terms and in their own unique meaningful ways. Storytelling is a traditional way of the Métis, passing knowledge and customs on through generations. The stories told will preserve this cultural heritage for Métis youth, providing them the opportunity to grow up confident and secure with a true sense of belonging to a strong Métis community.
