Storytelling – The Métis Christmas Mittens with Leah Dorion

The holiday season has always been a very special time for Métis families. A family-oriented people, the Métis often didn’t have money to buy expensive presents but instead made practical items with much love. In this spirit, award-winning author and illustrator Leah Marie Dorion takes readers back to the Métis tradition of making mittens for loved ones. Métis Christmas Mittens is a touching ode to Métis family life accompanied by Leah’s distinctive and evocative art. Leah welcomes everyone to join while she reads this wonderful story she wrote and illustrated.
