What it was like to be Métis

Southeast Newcomer Services is hosting a Zoom webinar on March 23 featuring Dawn Marie B. Sloan-Beahm as she presents what it was like to be Métis.  Dawn Marie’s family history is compelling and powerful as she shares stories of her 3-times Great-Grandfather’s story of his land taken by the government of Canada to be redistributed to paying settlers, forcing him and his family to leave their home and escape out of fear to Saskatchewan.

Dawn Marie is passionate about her culture, and If you know Dawn Marie, you know she has an extensive collection of First Nations and Métis cultural items, and we are excited she will be sharing them with us.  Zoom in on Tuesday, March 23rd, 1:30 to 3p.m., and hear Dawn Marie share her knowledge and experiences of Métis culture and life.

Sponsored by South East District and Southeast Newcomer Services.  This presentation is free and open to everyone.  To register, please phone 306-637-4920 and provide your email.
