Pawaatamihk, an open-access journal focused on Métis thought inside the academy and in the community, released its first issue last week. According to a press release from the University of Winnipeg, this open-access journal is the first “nation-specific journal in Canada.” It is dedicated to uplifting Métis voices, stories, and research and features community stories, poetry, visual culture, book reviews, and scholarly papers. The name was gifted by Métis Elder Verna DeMontigny; translated from Michif and Ininimowin, it signifies “a group of people dreaming.” The journal’s Editorial Team is comprised of Métis women based at University of Calgary, University of Manitoba, University of Victoria, and UWinnipeg.
