The Jig is Up is a podcast focusing on Metis culture, people, and the issues and topics of interest to all Metis.
Nationalism and Lateral Hate
Derogatory words for Eastern Métis, and sexual assault charges in a Métis community.
Patrick Harriott is a proud Métis, President of the Métis Nation of Greater Victoria, and running for election in the upcoming MNBC elections.
Tristen Durocher and Christopher Merasty are walking more than 600 kilometres to raise awareness of, and call for action for, the high suicide rate in northern Saskatchewan.
Hydro Deal is All Dried Up
Manitoba court upholds the right of the Manitoba Government to cancel the 50 year hydro deal. We also discuss some recent social media posts detailing times with the MNO allowed staff to say racist and derogatory remarks towards specific participants in some of their programs.
End Police Violence
Police violence, protests, riots, still in a pandemic, what a year so far. We also talk about what some Métis Nation employees are calling the destruction of the Métis Nation.
In our first ever zoom podcast Jason and I discuss the many aspects of the Covid 19 response from the Métis Cartel. We talk about how they are being very quiet about what they are doing, where the money is going, and who is getting any help at all. Through all of this where is the daily or even weekly updates from these so called leaders as to how many have been able to receive help, the safety of Métis communities, or even how they are handling things administratively.
