Modern Story

Region: Plains

Teaching: Wisdom

This modern story, which is fiction with informational text blended in, focuses on the traditional Métis sash, called a “ceinture fléchée.” Matt is always wearing one and his friend Jen wonders why. As Matt explains, although it no longer has the practical uses such as a belt, pocket, and rope that it had in the past, he, as a Métis, always wears the traditional sash. As Matt recounts the story of the sash, his pride in his ancestry and his delight in sharing the story of the sash are clear to Jen — and to the reader.
