Join author Elmer Ghostkeeper as he guides us back to the 1940's and explains the yearly Métis cycle of Mekiachahkewewin or Spirit Gifting, wherein humans engage in a collaborative project with the Earth for mutual survival. When resource industries come to Paddle River, the community's relationship with the Earth changes profoundly. Ghostkeeper eloquently describes his experience of these opposing world views.

From the Forward ...

"The information delves into the natural cycles of Métis. Placing it in a personal context strengthens the experience for the reader and makes it that much more meaningful."

Dr. Wanda Wuttannee
Department Head, Native Studies
University of Manitoba

About the Author

Elmer Ghostkeeper

A member of the Métis Nation, Elmer lives on a ranch outside Edmonton with his family. He is the President and CEO of SunStar Resources Inc., an oil and gas company on the Paddle Prairie Métis Settlement. Sunstar is wholly-owned and operated by the Métis people. Elmer says that this job "is the largest and most significant project [he has] worked on to date." And that is saying something. Before coming to SunStar, he was Regional Manager of Aboriginal Health Services for the Capital Health Authority in Edmonton. There, he developed a unique programme to help people live with and manage diabetes. Elmer has also been the Assistant City Engineer of Whitehorse in the Yukon Territory.
