Rendezvous at the Crossing neck tie
You bring the fiddle! Every great rendezvous has a fiddle, and this one dances with Métis flower beadwork. The beadwork is printed with a lustrous sheen on this smooth elegant satin tie. Connecting us across the great diaspora, the fiddle brings us our Michif language as music, in all its dialects of tempo. Across the land and through time, our heart knows the language that the fiddle sings.
A note on Appreciation vs. Appropriation. Is it appropriate to wear Métis artwork if you are not Métis? Yes! Provided the work has been created by a Métis person (rather than appropriated for the sake of consumerism), it is absolutely okay. It shows an appreciation for the work, as well as support for the Artist. Supporting Indigenous Artists is one of many ways to be a good ally.
