The classroom of the future: We went on a virtual field trip with Google Cardboard

Google I/O was light on new consumer products this year (and by "light," we mean there were none at all), but the company made up for the lack of marquee sizzle with some important under-the-radar innovations. Google's VR strategy is anything but paper-thin.

The Métis Nation / La Nation métisse

As descendants of First Nations and Europeans, citizens of the Métis Nation were related to both groups while not belonging fully to either. Their culture and nationhood were unique and resulted in an otipêyimisowak (independent) identity.

The Métis were a semi-nomadic people, valuing possessions that enabled travel—horses, carts and boats—and guns. These items are some of the things that indicate a Métis presence in historical images.

En tant que descendants des Premières Nations et des Européens, les Métis étaient issus de deux cultures mais n’appartenaient à aucune en particulier. Leur culture unique a donc mené à la création d’une identité indépendante connue comme « otipêyimisowak ». 

Les Métis étaient un peuple nomade qui valorisait les biens leur permettant de voyager comme les chevaux, les carrioles, les bateaux et les fusils. Ces articles ont laissé des traces qui témoignent de la présence des Métis sur les images historiques.
