Michif is the language of the Métis people. It was once spoken all across the homeland, but like most Indigenous languages the number of Michif speakers declined due to the colonization process that attempted to stamp out the use of languages other than English and French in Canada. Thankfully, efforts are now underway to preserve the Michif language and introduce it Métis youth and a new generation of speakers. As part of that effort, the Métis Nation of Ontario has created online Michif resources that are available for anyone who wants to learn.
