One Response to Catch Up with the Métis Matters Radio Show

    I listened to this show and note the discussion about the Name of our local/community in North Saanich. It’s name is ‘North Saanich Michif Society”. The Name Michif relates to both the Historic Half-breed Peoples and their language.
    Some of our the members still speak Michif (Alberta Dialect) and have adopted the Name Michif to honour our ancestor’s who identified as Michif.
    Many of the Metis/Half-breeds of the North still use that term when you ask them who they are.
    Many of the people visiting the” Back to Batoche Festival ” identify themselves as Michif.
    According to records in the Archives, “Gabriel Dumont ” used that term on himself.
    Our family still sings the old Michif Song “Kispin Kisakihin ”
