The field of Métis Studies has been afflicted by a longstanding tendency to situate Métis within deeply racialized contexts, and/or by an overwhelming focus on the nineteenth century. A People and A Nation ranges across identity, history, politics, literature, spirituality, religion, and kinship networks to reorient the conversation toward Métis experiences today. It also dismantles the narrow notions that continue to shape understandings of Métis existence to convincingly demonstrate a more robust approach to Metis studies centered on Métis peoplehood and nationhood.
 
Review Quotes
Stephen Cornell, University of Arizona
A People and a Nation is fascinating and provocative, dealing with complex material in an intriguing and ambitious way.
Carolyn Podruchny, York University
This book makes an important intervention in Métis Studies. No book like it currently exists. It will shift the field and move it forward, and belongs in classrooms across the country.
