Métis (Edmonton, Alberta)
May tea?
Oil on canvas, 2002
This painting by a promising young Métis artist, in the form of a comic strip in a cartoon world, may seem enigmatic at first glance, but it is in fact an appeal for the Métis to take back their lost identity. The very word “Métis” has lost its meaning, and is written incorrectly, phonetically, in the interrogative manner in which the artist himself heard it in his youth. The right hand at the neck refers to the hanging of Métis leader Louis Riel, an event that shattered his people’s identity.
It was not until 2003 that the Supreme Court of Canada, in its Powley decision, officially recognized the Métis right to their traditional territory and their hunting and fishing rights.
