Knowledge Holder, Lilyrose Meyers

Lilyrose Meyers
I am a kokum that is very proud of her Métis heritage. My life has been enriched with experiences of life on a trapline, farming, horse trainer, truck driver, equipment operator, boiler room assistant, gas bar manager and transportation and supervision for family services.

I am a long time Métis artisan, doll maker, fiber artist, nester, baker, teacher, thrift store shopper and lover of giving old things a new purpose.

I love teaching and sharing my many Métis crafts with people who love to make handcrafted items.

I have resided on Buffalo Lake Métis settlement for 41 years. I was born and raised on a traditional Métis farm north of High Prairie Alberta where I learned how to snare rabbits, ride horses, and live off the land.

I was raised in an old hand-hewn log home. Today I am blessed to be the Knowledge Keeper and Teacher at Métis Crossing. There I get to share my life experience with many people from all walks of life, so they learn who the Métis people are.

It is extremely important that our young people learn these traditional cultural skills to they can them pass down to the next generations. For it is through our children that our Métis heritage will survive and thrive.

My husband Jerry makes me happy and proud. My children make me smile with pride and humble me with their love. My family and friends are special, supportive and are an anchor in my life.
