I am Métis: Ceinture Fléchée
Elders, artisans, and scholars in the Métis community unite to preserve one of the oldest symbols since New France (Canada)… the Métis sash.
I am Metis: Ceinture Fléchée is the first comprehensive documentary on the Métis sash in over three decades. Host and Narrator, Andrea Menard, takes the viewer into a detailed look at the sash’s: origin, symbolism, construction and historical applications.
