Main text: 

Beadwork can be a spiritual exercise that offers time for reflection and for elders to tell stories that pass Métis culture on to our young people. Métis artists blended European, First Nations,  and emerging Métis aesthetics to create a style that continues to be recognized as distinctly Métis. It is such a unique symbol of our cultural identity that some First Nations called the Métis the “Flower Beadwork People.”
