Abstract
What does the phrase Me´tis peoples mean in constitutional terms? As lawyers and scholars dispute forms of Me´tis identity, and debate the nature and scope of Me´tis rights under the Canadian Constitution, understanding Me´tis experience of colonization is fundamental to achieving reconciliation. In Bead by Bead, contributors address the historical denial - at both federal and provincial levels - of outstanding Me´tis concerns and Aboriginal rights claims, in particular with respect to land, resources, and governance. Tackling such themes as ongoing colonial policies, the invisibility of Me´tis women in court decisions, identity politics, and racist legal principles, they uncover the troubling issues that plague Me´tis aspirations for a just future. This nuanced analysis of the parameters that current Indigenous legal doctrines place around Me´tis rights discourse moves beyond a one-size-fits-all definition of Me´tis or a uniform approach to Aboriginal rights. By raising critical questions about self-determination, colonization, kinship, land, and other essential aspects of Me´tis lived reality, these clear-eyed essays go beyond legal theorizing and create pathways to respectful, inclusive Me´tis-Canadian constitutional relationships.

Abstract
"This book relates the history and self-identifying process of a Me´tis woman who lived on the western plains of Canada during the transitional period from fur trade to sedentary agricultural economy. Marie Rose Delorme Smith was a woman of French-Me´tis ancestry who was born during the fur trade era and who spent her adult years as a pioneer rancher in the Pincher Creek district of southern Alberta. Sold by her mother at the age of sixteen to a robe and whiskey trader several years older than her, Marie Rose went on to raise seventeen children, establish a boarding house, take a homestead, serve as medicine woman and midwife, and to publish several articles in the early prairie ranch periodical, Canadian Cattlemen. The author relies on close readings of these articles, as well as the diaries, manuscripts, and fictional writing of Marie Rose Delorme Smith, along with personal interviews with her descendants. These sources allow a close examination of the self-identifying process for Marie Rose as she negotiated the changing environment of the western plains during the late 1800s and early 1900s when large numbers of Anglo-speaking immigrants settled in the area. Clearly proud of her Me´tis identity, Marie Rose was a member of an extended family who served as Louis Riel's soldiers, and she presented that identity tentatively in her own writings. Roles which Marie Rose assumed with pride were those of author, historian, mother, and historical character, and these roles serve as themes from which to examine her life."--Publisher's website.
