Métis Anarchy & Politics With Molly Swain

Posted on: Feb 2, 2021

Métis have always been a politically engaged people, with self-determination, collective action, freedom, provisionality, and relationality as central principles of how we govern and organize ourselves, from 19th century anti-colonial resistance movements to 20th and 21st century struggles for land and independence. This talk will explore some initial thoughts on Métis anarchism as a liberatory political project, grounded in Metis history and governance.

Molly Swain is an otipêmsiw-iskwêw PhD student in the Faculty of Native Studies at the University of Alberta, studying 20th century Métis political history.
