Presenter Introduction: My name is Roxanne Sims. I am currently a SUNTEP student working towards my education degree. Through the SUNTEP program, I have been able to delve into and reclaim a lot of my Metis culture and heritage. My Metis roots were very connected to the Hudson's Bay Fur Trading Company and come from Ontario. I have just begun to learn the traditional Metis language, called Michif which is very exciting. I also really enjoy jigging and beading, which are also traditional Metis skills. Maarsii
