Description

These beads come together to form a dazzling floral motif that represents a living tradition for the Red River Métis, known by their neighbours as the “Flower Beadwork People.” The second Generations coin celebrates the tradition of Métis beadwork, which is a proud expression of Métis culture and identity, and an exercise in visual storytelling, as seen on this coin. Today, this centuries-old artform is also a powerful statement of continuity, for each bead contributes to a gorgeous tapestry; and that signature craftsmanship is passed down from one generation to the next, inspiring others to create the patterns that stitch together a people’s past, present and future.

Celebrate the everlasting heritage of the Red River Métis.
