Louis Riel Day

Bentley Centre
Prince George

Louis Riel is recognized as an advocate of justice for the Métis people, but he represents much more. He helped lay the framework for minority rights and cultural co-operation, and is regarded as a founder of Manitoba. Louis Riel was executed for treason on November 16th, 1885. 134 years later the Métis continue to assert themelves as a distinct and rights-bearing nation. Louis Riel Day is held to commemorate Riel's life and to celebrate the Métis people's culture, language, and heritage.

Join our Métis Elders for a day filled with cultural activities, displays, workshops, and more.
