It is Métis Week and we began the week with an assembly with all our students. Jerome Chabot, Métis Learning Coach, joined us and shared his history and music.
Do you know why Métis Week is at this time in November? To honour Louis Riel who died on November 16, 1885. Louis Riel was a Canadian politician, a founder of the province of Manitoba, and a political leader of the Métis people.
