Every Saturday this summer, from 10am-noon

This is a guided walk through Downtown Winnipeg highlighting the role of the Métis Nation in Manitoba’s history. Engaging with a history that’s often oversimplified, this tour looks at Winnipeg landmarks through a Métis perspective. Learn about the emergence of the Métis Nation, how they mounted resistance against the Canadian government, and examine the contrasting fortunes of settler families like the Macdonalds, who prospered through westward colonial expansion.

Recommended for ages 10+
