On May 27, 2016, members of the Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) Windsor-Essex-Kent Métis Council (WEKMC) participated in a symposium put on by the Greater Essex County District School Board (GECDSB).The symposium entitled, Through the Native Eye, invited high school students and teachers to learn about First Nations, Métis, and Inuit culture.

MNO WEKMC Secretary Katie Baltzer and Women’s Representative Donna Grayer facilitated a breakout session during the symposium called So you think you are Métis? The session included a presentation on Métis history and way-of-life and a question and answer period. All of the students were familiar with Louis Riel and were engaged in the discussion. Also assisting MNO WEKMC members with their presentation was Grayer’s daughter, Fawne LoMascolo, MNO citizen and teacher with the GECDSB.
