St. Bernadette Learns about Metis Culture

Pictured is student Sabrina Crossthwaite was selected out of the group of Gr. 4 students from St. Bernadette to model a selection of Métis clothing.

May 5, 2014 - Grade 4 students at St. Bernadette Catholic Elementary School attended a Métis presentation Monday, April 28th at St. David Catholic Elementary school. Students were immersed in stories about the Métis culture and learned about different tools used by the Métis people. They enjoyed being able to feel the various furs and learn about what each tool was used for during the War of 1812. The students were especially excited for their upcoming year-end field trip in which they will be travelling to Sainte-Marie Among the Hurons where they will continue their exploration of the life and culture of the Early Settlers.
