At once bound by and beyond the constitution, Métis peoples occupy an unstable position in Canadian law. While scholars debate the scope of Métis constitutional rights, reconciliation cannot be achieved without confronting indigenous experiences with colonization. In Bead by Bead, contributors unpack the ongoing denial of Métis land, resource, and sovereignty claims under Canadian law. This nuanced analysis of how current legal doctrine limits Métis rights reveals the complexity of indigenous and settler relationships and uncovers new avenues toward a more just future.
 

Review Quotes
Tony Belcourt, OC, first president of the Native Council of Canada and founding president of the Métis Nation of Ontario
“Finally, we have a source that in a single place provides material and commentary that will support informed debate and help to come to grips with the questions of Métis identity, community, and constitutional rights. . . .  This book accurately addresses who we are: as a people with common values, traditions, culture, way of life, family ties, history, communities and shared territory. . . .  There is no question of its value, the knowledge we gain from it and how it will augment everyone’s perspective of the issues of Métis.”
