Metis Study II-Art Mat & Cult

CREDITS: 3
LENGTH: 15 weeks
CAMPUS: Prince George
REQUISITES: None
 
DESCRIPTION:
The purpose of this course is to examine and explore aspects of Metis identity using an ethnographic approach toward the study of Metis art forms. Following Metis Studies I, Metis Studies II continues to rebuild the historiography of Metis people as revealed through Metis material culture. Hands-on reproduction of artand technology techniques(beadwork, caribou hair tufting, and finger weaving) combined with oral traditions and readings from the work of Metis scholars will provide the learner with insight into the historical and contemporary socio-political identity of BC Metis communities. Students will consider ethical,economic,aesthetic, and functional implications, discussing protocol for appropriation (borrowing of style and technique), and reinterpretation.
