METIS AUTHOR CREATES A NEW BOOK FOR YOUNG PEOPLE
~ Dr. Dawn Karima
Jessie Moreau, a Métis woman from
Ontario, Canada, boldly describes her
new book by saying: “I hope that any
person who reads this story is
ultimately encouraged to find that
which makes them unique as a person and that which makes them whole.”
"BEING (ME)TIS" is her new book, which examines identity and intersection among Indigenous communities. Being (Mé)tis chronicles a young woman's coming of age. Her transformation is complicated by her lack of knowledge of her tribal heritage. Feelings of loneliness and isolation surround her until she learns to look for connection and community. As she seeks her place in the world, she discovers the richness of her Native roots.
Educators, parents, elders and caregivers could share this book with children. Tribal libraries, childcare and even pediatric providers could make this book a part of their outreach to enrich youth experiences. Mainstream schools and libraries could contribute to healing division and connecting cultures by including this book.
