Historic Manitoba photos repatriated | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

"A historic photo of Louis Riel was returned to Manitoba on Friday, as was the spirit of the Métis leader.

 

A photograph of the Métis leader and his councillors, dated around 1869, is among a collection of eight historic photographs known as cartes de visite, which were taken by several photographers in the 1860s and 1870s in the Red River Settlement."

Review of Shadows Cast by Stars by Catherine Knutsson | Quill & Quire

"It is 200 years in the future, and 16-year-old Cassandra Mercredi is living with her twin brother, Paul, and their father on the outskirts of the Corridor, home to the general population. Because of their aboriginal heritage (they come from a Métis background), the Mercredis are among the few who are immune to Plague, a disease that poses a constant threat and causes slow and painful death. Antigens in aboriginal blood offer protection, making it highly sought after."
