Known as "Canada's forgotten people," the Metis have long been here, but until 1982 they lacked the legal status of Native people. At that point, however, the Metis were recognized in the constitution as one of Canada's Aboriginal peoples. A significant addition to Metis historiography, The Long Journey of a Forgotten People includes Metis voices and personal narratives that address the thorny and complicated issue of Metis identity from historical and contemporary perspectives. Topics include eastern Canadian Metis communities; British military personnel and their mixed-blood descendants; life as a Metis woman; and the Metis peoples ongoing struggle for recognition of their rights, including discussion of recent Supreme Court rulings.
