Filmmaker Christine Welsh embraces her identity and the history of her foremothers in this intensely personal documentary. She embarks on a vital quest to discover the unwritten history of Métis women and in the process reclaims her past. By combining documentary filmmaking with dramatic recreations, Welsh unveils stories of her ancestors and pays tribute to the First Nations women who lay the foundation for the unique society of Métis people.

Also available as a 16mm print with advanced notice.
