wellandThe Métis display in the Welland Days in the Park event The Niagara Region Metis Council (NRMC) and Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) staff from the Welland office participated in Welland’s “Days in the Park” event the weekend of June 4-5. The NRMC and staff organized an interactive display demonstrating the Métis way of life from days gone by. The display included a full “Metis Camp” with tents, lean-to and even meals prepared on the open fire. The display was very well received and provided history and background on Métis culture and our way of life to the many visitors that attended the event.
