Métis, Métis Not is a video documentation of the filmmaker's lack of relationship with her cultural background. It explores her own myths, stereotypes, and clichés from reenacting the discovery of her native heritage to embracing her Métis-ness late in life, transforming into a Gift Shop Native Doll. The piece deals with feelings of guilt, lack of entitlement, and the filmmaker's own naiveté at her personal cultural crossroads and what it means to be Métis.
