A Living History of Métis Families as told by Dorothy Chartrand

Lakehead University Associate Professor Judy Iseke-Barnes, Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Education, worked with various groups to record in film the story of Métis families in Canada. Métis grandmother Dorothy Chartrand tells the story of her Métis families, and the political and social change that impacted Métis lives in the 1800s until today: her family’s relocation, the effects of government land policies, and ways that Métis women in the fur trade, and later community life, helped to sustain communities.
