A Métis Holistic Lifelong Learning Model (Aboriginal Education Research Centre, U of S; First Nations Higher Education Consortium, 2007) can be used as a reference framework for examining Métis perspectives of Self, People, Land, Languages and Traditions as major Sources of Knowledge and Knowing. The Métis Holistic Lifelong Learning Model was developed in consultation with Métis people from across Canada and is accepted by the Métis National Council as a representation of what Métis view are important elements in the learning cycle. In addition to the thematic areas listed above, the Model also illustrates the roles of the Physical, Social, Economic and Political environments as essential components of learning. Completing the Model are the processes of Spirituality, Balance and Harmony, and Healthcare. Together, all of these thematic areas reflect some of the Indigenous Knowledge and Values unique to Métis.
