Métis research methodologies have not always been valued. The Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) outlined 94 Calls to Action to privilege Indigenous perspectives, and likely provided the impetus for a shift in which scholarship seeking to reclaim, define, explore, validate, and amplify Indigenous Research Methodologies (IRM) exists. Articulating Métis specific methodologies is congruent with the common research process of aligning all aspects of the research process. Because limited research with Métis women is documented, it is an area for contribution. This paper aims to explore documented Métis methodologies and contribute a Métis arts-based methodology for an upcoming doctoral research project.
