Metis Dancers

On November 18, our school hosted a special guest who shared about her Métis culture with our students.  She blended storytelling with dance to teach our students about the Métis people.

Some facts about the Métis people:

The Métis people had a distinct way of life that incorporated aspects of both French-Canadian and Native cultures. This could explain why they were called the ‘Métis’, which came from the French word for ‘mixed’

Today there are 350,000-400,000 Métis in photo(4) photo(5) photo(6)
