Métis Sash at the Smithsonian Museum
This is a detail of a Métis sash at the Smithsonian Museum of the American Indian. (The museum covers North America as well as Central and South America.)
Today the CBC reported that "the Supreme Court of Canada ruled that the federal government failed in its obligations to the Métis people." "Métis win historic land dispute ruling in Supreme Court Manitoba: Métis Federation sought declaration of government's failure to implement 1870 land deal," CBC News, March 8, 2013, www.cbc.ca/news/politics/story/2013/03/08/pol-metis-supreme-court-land-dispute.html.
