A number of websites have been created by members of the Métis community and other institutions that offer resources in learning the Michif language. There is a very user friendly and helpful website called Learn Michif, created by the Métis Nation of British Columbia and the Métis Youth of British Columbia. This site provides language lessons, videos of people speaking Michif and videos of stories from Métis Elders that were recorded by Métis youth.
