Promotional Information

This provocative book makes the case that by defining Metis people as racially mixed, Canada is undermining the ability of the Metis nation to make political claims as a people.

About the Author

Chris Andersen is an associate professor, the associate dean (research), and the director of the Rupertsland Centre for Metis Research in the Faculty of Native Studies at the University of Alberta. He is also the current editor of aboriginal policy studies, an online, peer-reviewed journal dedicated to publishing on Metis, non-Status Indian, and urban Aboriginal issues in Canada and abroad. He is co-editor of Indigenous in the City: Contemporary Identities and Cultural Innovation (UBC Press, 2013).


"Metis" is, without a doubt, essential reading for everyone who studies the Metis, Indigeneity, and/or race and racialization as it provides a powerful critique of Metis racialization and an example of the impact of racialization on Indigenous nations.-- Monique Giroux * Acadiensis *

Andersen's book is thorough and deep, insightful and provocative. Some will find it unsettling. But, for anyone interested in questions of Metis identity, or more generally Indigenous rights in Canada, it is an essential read.

-- Dwight Newman * Review of Constitutional Studies *
Andersen does a superb job of engaging with the scholarship of the field, allowing the reader to gain a clear understanding of its historical trajectory and where Andersen's work stands in comparison ... Metis is an important contribution and I expect that it will spur lively discussions, productive critiques, and shift the scholarship in the field. -- Jill Doerfler (White Earth Anishinaabe) * NAIS (Native American and Indigenous Studies) Journal, Vol. 2, No. 2, 2015 *
