Derided as being fake, race-shifting, cultural appropriators, Eastern Métis demonstrates the historical and social evidence for the origins and continued existence of Métis communities across Ontario and the Canadian Maritimes as well as the West. The authors in this volume explore the archival and historical record that challenges dominant nationalist tropes of all stripes, narratives which exclude the very possibility of legitimate Métis communities and identities in central and eastern Canada. Taking a continental rhizomatic approach, the book provides a rich and nuanced view of what it means to be Métis.Michel Bouchard (Editor, Contributor), Sébastien Malette (Editor, Contributor), Siomonn Pulla (Editor, Contributor), Christine Elsey (Contributor), Denis Gagnon (Contributor), Katie MacLeod (Contributor), Tiana Mager (Contributor), Guillaume Marcotte (Contributor), Emmanuel Michaux (Contributor), Jo-Anne Muise Lawless (Contributor), Seán O’Connell (Contributor), Robert Papen (Contributor), Étienne Rivard (Contributor), Eastern Métis: Chronicling and Reclaiming a Denied Past, Lanham: Lexington Books, 2021.https://www.amazon.ca/Eastern-M%C3%A9tis-Chronicling-Reclaiming-Denied/dp/1793605432/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=eastern+metis&qid=1604774614&sr=8-1
