Monique Giroux is an ethnomusicologist whose research centres on Métis cultural and political revival and resurgence in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta. Emerging from an understanding that cultural practices have political implications, her work examines the ways in which music and dance are used to re-build the Métis Nation; to build alliances among Métis communities and with settlers; and to remake or, problematically, reinforce unequal relations between settler and Métis peoples.
