Socials 10-2: The Métis and the West

Today we started with a discussion of some elements of Métis culture that we learned about in the Gabriel Dumont reading. For example, we talked about how shaming is not a key part of our mainstream Canadian culture, but that it was a serious punishment for the Métis - for example, for theft. Next we read pp151-54 from the text and did a pair/share. After that, I took some of the points you made on the board for later reference. We ended by watching the People's History episode titled "Seven Oaks." There is no homework.
