Hosted by interdisciplinary Métis artist, mentor and author Leah Dorion the first ten episodes of ‘Paykiiwikay,’ which is Michif for “come and visit,” takes listeners on a journey through Métis communities around the province of Saskatchewan.
"Working on ‘Paykiiwikay’ has been one of the highlights of my broadcast career,” says producer and veteran journalist David McGuffin. “I am proud of my Métis roots, which date back to the fur trade. Like too many Canadians my understanding of the story of the Métis people faded out at the Battle of Batoche and the defeat of Louis Riel. Working with Leah and the Métis Nation–Saskatchewan on this series has opened my eyes to the depth and richness of Métis history, language and culture. I hope our listeners gain as much from listening to this ten part journey, as I did from working on it."
Canadian Geographic and Métis Nation–Saskatchewan (MN–S) are proud to present ‘Paykiiwikay’ Métis Culture Podcast, a new online series exploring the rich Métis culture and Michif language. Click below to listen to the podcasts.
