Did you know that November 16 is Louis Riel Day? What do you know of the history of the Metis people? Did you know we have a vibrant and strong Metis community in and around Golden?
This week we will be honouring the role Metis play in the fabric of our country. Flag raising, special guests and a kitchen party are highlights to be aware of.
ps. It was fortuitous that, on the eve of this week of celebration, Deb Fisher provided staff with a Metis 101 course during the recent professional learning day. All participants walked away with a greater understanding of the history and experience of the Metis people.
