Métis – âpihtawikosisân

This piece was created as an entry for a calendar contest, but there were not even 12 entries so I won by default! A win is still a win I suppose.

Having any label, but in particular, the label of ‘Metis’ or ‘âpihtawikosisân’ in Cree can be a source of pride as well as overwhelming and limiting. Ultimately, I am proud of who I am I just wish others, Indigenous or non-Indigenous, could see the spirit behind the label.
