We are thrilled to share with you the completion of Métis Nation British Columbia’s book “Kaa-wiichitoyaahk: We Take Care of Each Other” a cultural wellness guide that explores the rich history and unique identify of Métis people in British Columbia.
This book is the first of its kind in British Columbia, likely all of Canada, and was developed through engagement with Métis Elders and Youth across the province in 2019. We are thankful for the generous contribution of Provincial Health Services Authority and the Province’s Ministry of Mental Health Addictions.
The title, Kaa-wiichitoyaahk, means we take care of each other in Michif and is an important cultural Métis teaching. It is our hope that this book will not only teach non-Métis Canadians about the rich history and culture of the Métis but also help connect Métis individuals to their cultural and community.
Please note: due to MNBC’s ongoing head office move, shipments will be delayed until the week of July 5, 2021. We appreciate your patience during this time.
