Do you know the significance of a Métis sash? Or what a Rendezvous is? Or what life was like for the voyageurs?

Find out answers to these questions and more at the Town of Huntsville’s annual First Nations, Métis and Inuit Celebration, taking place in River Mill Park on Wednesday June 21 from 11:00 am to 2:30 pm.

This year’s celebration is a Rendezvous, jointly hosted by the Métis Nation of Ontario and the Moon River Métis Council.

The spirit of a Rendezvous is similar to a First Nations pow-wow, but they are not the same thing notes Senator Verna Porter-Brunelle from the Métis Nation of Ontario. “On June 21, National Aboriginal Day, we honour the three aboriginal peoples: First Nations, Métis and Inuit. It’s important to distinguish the Métis from the First Nations and from the Inuit, which each have their own culture and traditions.”
