Who is Métis?

Métis  12x15 print by annamagruder on Etsy, $70.00: I came across this painting the other day called "Métis" by annamagruder on Etsy and it felt like a beautiful description of being Métis.  The scissors in her hand are pretty haunting.  Given the talk about who is a Métis given the recent ruling and the upcoming MNO election which seems to have lots of coded language these seems to be on people's minds again.

I have written about this quite a bit here and how I think the answer is in community and ceremony and everyday reclaiming of language and thoughts.  What are you doing today to continue this reclaiming?
