Both European and First Nations cultures influenced Métis art; however, Métis art also had an influence on First Nations groups. Métis art often was mislabeled and credit was given to other groups, even when the Métis were the first to bead. The Métis were famous for their floral beadwork, and were often called the ‘Flower Beadwork People’. The symmetrical floral beadwork was often set against a dark background, was inspired by European floral designs. The needle workers used materials from both cultures: quills, beads, and silk embroidery thread. The Métis used geometric patterns, and floral motifs to create unique and distinct style.
