Learning about Métis Culture at Sudbury Catholic Schools

The Grade 4 French Immersion students at St. Bernadette Catholic Elementary School attended a Métis presentation Tuesday, April 14th at St. David Catholic Elementary school. The students enjoyed a presentation by Scott Carpenter, a Community Development Officer with the Metis Nation of Ontario, who shared stories about the Métis culture, and taught the students about different tools, toys and clothing used by the Métis people. The students 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 to try out the games the Métis children enjoyed.
