Métis Week is celebrated each year during the week of November 16 in recognition of the anniversary of Louis Riel’s death. Louis Riel has been recognized in modern times as one of the fathers of Confederation and is widely admired by the Métis community for his dedication to Métis rights and culture.

“It is very important that Indigenous history is shared, honored and respected in our schools and communities” says Darren Kuester, Board Chair. “Our Indigenous families are an important part of our schools, communities and society and Métis Week is a great opportunity to celebrate and highlight the history, culture and traditions of Métis people and their contributions to our country.”
