About

Prairie Métis Works is a Métis and French-Canadian maman who makes moccasins, trades blankets, and gathers plants in old ways, with modern style.

I am a status-holding member of the Manitoba Métis Federation, and a proud French-Canadian. I love to celebrate my heritage by making traditional clothing and collecting things. My collection of moccasins, mitts and hats that I've made, and trade blankets, foraged teas and quills I collected got so big that it took over my home office. My family jokingly started to call it the Trading Post.

Friends and family encouraged me to share my creations with the world. Or as my husband put it- "no more blankets until you make some room!" So, Prairie Métis Works was born.

What you see in my store is whatever I have in my trading post at the moment. Blankets, mitts, moccasins and more! Most of my work is done via word of mouth, custom order. If there is something you'd like, I'd be delighted to hear from you!

Thank you, Merci, Kinanaskomitin,

Candice
