Métis Week 2015

Posted on November 16

Each year, on November 16th, Métis people across Canada pay tribute to the Right Honourable Louis Riel by holding a commemorative ceremony on the date of his execution. This ceremony symbolizes the commitment Métis people share in striving for and promoting the visions of Louis Riel and is one of the most important dates on the Métis calendar. In addition to recognizing Louis Riel Day on November 16th, the Métis Nation of Alberta has declared the week surrounding November 16th “Métis Week.” The week is devoted to commemorating the sacrifices of the Métis who continue to strive toward rights and recognition as a distinct nation. This year, Métis Week runs from Sunday November 15th until Saturday November 21st.
