McMurray Métis recognize Louis Riel Day, Metis Week with documentary

"We really do believe our future is in the youth and we’re huge advocates of education as well, so the team put their heads together and decided to create a 30-minute interactive documentary for them.”


The Métis Nation of Alberta Local Council 1935 produced a 30-minute movie sharing it with grades five and seven students in Fort McMurray’s Catholic and Public School Divisions.

The McMurray Métis spent two months planning the documentary, and two weeks to produce, It's hoped students and adults will gain more of an appreciation and understanding for the Métis people and culture.

The documentary will air in more than 50 classrooms this week.
