Meet the Métis
Explore the Cultural Gathering Centre and the land at Métis crossing through a 1.5 hour guided tour and immersive cultural experience. Let us introduce you to Métis crossing and the Métis peoples through art, dance, story telling, nature and traditional practices.
Join our Métis interpreter in an exploration of the unique history, culture, language, and way of life of traditional Métis people. Step inside historic river lot homes that once belonged to the Sinclair and Cromerty families that settled here in the 1800’s. Put yourself in the shoes of these families as you explore their homes and yards and live how they once lived on this very lot.
Finally get in touch with your artistic side. Test your jigging skills, and hand weave a bracelet you can take home with you as a reminder of your experience at Métis Crossing.
Our Meet the Métis experience includes:
- A tour of traditional lands and homes
- An overview of traditional seasonal practices and their importance to the Métis people
- Demonstrations of art, stories, and history
- Traditional arts and craft
Meet the Métis is available Monday to Thursday 11:00am to 2:00pm and changes with the seasons.
