Metis journey planned for Manitoba’s 150th – The Carillon

Plans are underway to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Manitoba’s entry into Confederation with a Metis-led journey along the historic Dawson Trail.
The Red River Metis Expedition would begin in early May 2020, just west of the Whitemouth River, and wind through the RMs of Reynolds, Ste Anne, and Tache on its way to a ceremony at Winnipeg’s Upper Fort Garry trading post.
Jenny Dupas, executive director of Eastman Tourism, said the idea originated with Armand Jerome, an Oakbank-based master builder of Red River carts who will lead the expedition.
