Day 5 

Louis Riel Day is commemorated each year to remind us that Louis Riel was executed on November 16, 1885, for being a persistent advocate for the rights of the Metis people. Louis Riel was a great humanitarian, Elder and leader and above all an advocate for the justice of the Metis people.  He is recognized as a founder of confederation and a political and spiritual leader of the Metis people. 2018 marks the 133rd anniversary of the end of the Northwest Resistance in Saskatchewan and the death of Louis Riel in 1885.  Today we remember Louis Riel and his contributions to Canada, to the Metis Nation and First Nations.

Students from Beaver Brae will be attending the Metis flag raising ceremony at City Hall at 9:30 am this morning.  There is also an Open House and other activities planned starting at noon and going throughout the day until 7:00 pm at the Kenora Metis Office at 621 Lakeview Drive in Norman.  All are welcome!
