A moving and personal story about a man's recollections as a young Métis boy, growing up on an Aboriginal reserve in central Manitoba, caught between two cultures. As a Métis, young Raphael had inherited the white features of his ancestors, but had not known. He ultimately left the residential school and moved to the city, carrying with him the burden of feeling he did not belong anywhere. Raphael Ironstand survived all the remarkable obstacles during his young life, and Hey, Monias! is a brave testament to the importance of cultural and personal identity.
