Meet the Métis

Explore the land at Métis Crossing through a 1.5-hour immersive cultural, guided tour, introducing you to Métis Crossing and the Métis peoples through art, dance, story telling, nature, and traditional practices.

Join our Métis Knowledge holder in an exploration of the Métis connection to the land and experience life at a traditional hunting camp. Step inside historic river lot homes that once belonged to the Sinclair and Cromarty families. Put yourself in the shoes of these families, as you explore their garden and live how they once lived, on this very river lot. Visit the beautiful North Saskatchewan River and investigate the many traditional plants and how the Métis people used them. Discover wildlife and wilderness.

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, camps and trappers cabins
  • An overview of traditional seasonal practices and their importance to the Métis people
  • Demonstrations of art, stories, and history
  • Traditional games, fiddling, jigging lessons
  • Traditional arts and crafts.
