Spiced Cranberry Punch Spritzer
As shared in an earlier post, Metis Holiday Sauce des Atocas, cranberries are also known as “des Atocas”. But to avoid confusion among those who do not speak Michif, this recipe is named “cranberry” in the title.
However, if you choose to switch it up and call it “Spiced Punch Spritzer des Atocas” your Métis friends will be impressed. Part of accepting other cultures and being inclusive of others, such as the Métis Nation of Canada, is taking the time to understand their heritage and culture. A long standing Indigineous people of Canada, the Métis have long been misunderstood. As a result, for decades, many of us have hid in silence and shame.
But in recent years this trend has been reversing. We, Métis, have been coming out of hiding, standing strong and being recognized for who we are. The original blending of cultures in Canada between the First Nations and Europeans. While being neither truly First Nations, nor European, the Métis Nation was born over 150 years ago before Canada even became a nation. A merging of 2 nationalities and lifestyles that resulted in a very distinct new culture. Distinct in:
- and more.
Métis, like myself, like to think of ourselves as having taken the best of both our cultural backgrounds and blending them into who we are today. And believe me, we love Canada! And that alone is a good reason to celebrate!
