Michif is more than a language. It is both a worldview and a name for a people. This timely book, the second volume of The Metis Legacy Series, delineates traditional Michif culture including: folklore, storytelling, medicines, and healing traditions, spirituality, transportation systems, housing, clothing, and family structures. Co-published with Pemmican Publications, this resource is an indispensable companion for all those interested in knowing more about the Michif worldview and culture.
