    This book is a collection of stories about culture, history, and nationhood as told by Métis women. The Métis are known by many names — Otipemisiwak, "the people who own ourselves;" Bois Brules, "Burnt Wood;" Apeetogosan, "half brother" by the Cree; "half-breed," historically; and are also known as "rebels" and "traitors to Canada." They are also known as the "Forgotten People." Few really know their story. Many people may also think that Métis simply means "mixed," but it does not. They are a people with a unique and proud history and Nation. In this era of reconciliation, Stories of Métis Women explains the story of the Métis Nation from the women's own perspective.
