Weaving the Sash: Métis Youth, Culture and Connection

What is the Weaving the Sash project?

Weaving the Sash is a project that has been created by and for Métis youth of the Greater Toronto Area and surrounding regions. Lead organizers Christine Skura, Alicia Blore, Elise St. Germain, and Lindsay DuPré have partnered with the Toronto & York Region Métis Council to offer a four­part event beginning in the fall of 2015 and running until the summer of 2016. Programming for these events will be informed by youth feedback from two sharing circles held in September (one in Toronto and the second in York Region). We hope to provide Métis youth in these regions with the cultural experiences that are difficult to access in an urban context. While learning traditions like beading, jigging, fishing, and plant medicines, youth will have the chance to strengthen their own Métis identity and to build meaningful relationships with Senators and Elders, knowledge holders, the land, and each other.

Thanks to the Laidlaw Foundation for their support!
