December 10, 2012 - St. Charles College Grade 10 Native Studies students participated in Louis Riel Day on November 16, 2012 at Tom Davies Square. The day began with Metis dignitaries welcoming and speaking on the significance of Louis Riel, the father of the Metis Nation. A smudging ceremony and the raising of the Metis flag in Tom Davies Square took place to the sound of Metis fiddling. Students also enjoyed listening to Metis senators share stories and made moccasin key chains to take home. It was an excellent day of learning and making new friends. When asked if they would like to come back next year, the students voted unanimously in favour of returning. Miigwetch, merci and thank you to the Sudbury Metis Council for welcoming St. Charles College students to this day of commemoration and celebration of the life of Louis Riel and the Metis people.
