Beyond Fiddle & Sashes
tells the story of Metis people, culture, history and influence through their objects, photographs, and narratives.
"Visitors will explore Metis roots in North America, including the fur trade, voyageurs and domestic life. The history of the Metis is tied to the waves of settlement, the extablishment and loss of communities, and the turbulent events of the 1870, including Louis Riel's defense of Metis interests!"
