Metis Rose: a portrait of Elder Rose Fleury (2012)
Dir: Marjorie Beaucage

like grandma used to say…
Elder Roseʼs 86 years of living are anchored in the core values she learned from her great grandmother who raised her. This video, in her own voice, is a pilgrimage into her own life as she puts things in order before she goes.
An exploration of her ancestral origins in Tourondʼs Coulee, where the Battle of Fish Creek occurred in 1885, led to her lifeʼs work of genealogy research. As she says, “ I had to know….”
Raising 29 children (9 of her own and 20 foster children) without indoor plumbing is a feat in itself! Through all this, Rose worked for the Métis all her life and was part of creating the first Métis local and involved in numerous womenʼs organizations to better the lives of the Métis people. As an Elder, she continues her work with schools and communities across the land, leaving her legacy.
Sit and have tea with Rose as she reflects on her life
Metis, Duck Lake, SK
Marjorie Beaucage is a filmmaker, cultural worker, and community-based video activist. She was born in Vassar Manitoba. Her work as an artist formally began at the age of forty when she attended Film School at Ryerson. Culture is a collective agreement; being Métis, she is also committed to building cultural bridges between worlds through her creations/stories. In 2005, she created A Medicine Wheel for the Indian Act as a tool for de-colonisation and restoring relations between cultures as well as a DVD Medicine Bundle for Sexual Health and HIV/AIDS: Me Mengwa Maa Sinatae: Butterfly Patterns of Light. Marjorie is committed to creating a living legacy with the People and making room for diverse worldviews and storytelling.
