|Métis Nation of Canada Matryoshka|
The Métis became known as the "Flower Beadwork People" because of the floral pattern beadwork the Métis women created. The website for the University of Oregon's Museum of Natural and Cultural History explains the history of their beadwork in a page entitled "Métis Textiles". Further explanation of the symbols used in the beadwork can be found here: "Metis Beadwork".
I have so enjoyed my research for my Métis Nation of Canada Matryoshka! I found so many wonderful images and videos around the web and pinned them to a board here.
