New print: La Flèche
The Métis people helped shape the Canada of today, mainly in terms of the expansion of the west. The Métis became the link between the First Nations and their European allies, assisted by their wives who translated the native languages and helped resolve any cultural issues that arose. Métis Artist David Albert created this arrow (flèche) to pay tribute to the trading activities between the Métis and First Nations people. The Métis were, in fact, astute business people. The flower represents the Métis, also known as the "flower beadwork people," and the Arrow represents the First Nations and the connection between them.
