Watching Videos

There are three areas which you can view the content that we’ve created for the ‘Our Elder Stories’ project: Stories Films and Songs 

Stories are shorter videos edited down from our larger project. These are categorised by content and Elder that is featured in each video. Visit our stories section to view the various categories and start your journey.

Our films section is a collection of longer material that has been developed for various purposes. Visit our films section to see a short breakdown of each film and to watch them in full.

Our songs section contains videos that relate to or are of songs that our elders sung or knew. Visit our songs section to experience the music for yourself.

Additional Content

In addition to our video and audio content on the site, we also have a number of other sections and resources available to help visitors learn more about Métis culture and the Michif language, as well as related Indigenous languages including Cree. Here is a breakdown of what we have available on our site (click each item to be taken to its respective page):

Sharing and revitalizing Michif language is important as this is a highly threatened language. Sharing Métis culture is important too in understanding the life and knowledge of Métis people. We are always looking to receive feedback about our project and thoughts from visitors like you, and we are always looking for any further information and resources that we can share.
