Métis Week – November 13th-16th
Metis week marks the celebration of The Metis people, their culture and their contributions. The Métis are descendants of French Canadian or European fur traders and First Nations mothers, who have evolved to develop their own unique and distinct culture. The infinity sign, a Métis symbol, is used to represent the coming together of two cultures. Throughout the week we will be learning more about Métis culture and taking part in this celebration.
