The Life of Louis Riel

Free activity

Louis Riel remains one of the most debated figures in the history of current-day Manitoba. He is renowned in the history of Canada for his political achievements in the Red River Colony. Join us as we present the man behind the resilience. Created in Winnipeg by the Manitoba Metis Federation, The Life of Louis Riel captures the humanity of one of the Fathers of Confederation by sharing his story — that of a young boy growing up in a history of nationalism to become the celebrated leader of the Métis Nation and all Manitobans.
