A Métis Moment: History of Louis Riel and Manitoba

Wednesday, February 16 | 12:00 pm – Register

Shirley Delorme Russell from the Louis Riel Institute joins us for a lunch hour session to share the history of Métis peoples in Manitoba in advance of Louis Riel Day (February 21) to support our collective truth and reconciliation journey.

Learn about Louis Riel and why we have a provincial holiday named for him! Find out why the creation of the province of Manitoba (where Louis Riel was the President) led to the Supreme Court Land Claims Case of 2013. Understand all the resources that are available to Métis citizens (including RRC Polytech students!)
