Metis Saturdays in Penticton

Sheila Ridden (our Metis ROOTS worker) has noticed that we have a lot of Metis families and children in the South Okanagan and no Metis programing and/or events that occur in our community. To change this, Sheila is planning on holding an event on a Saturday once every three months that is specific to Metis culture.


The first event is going to be held on Saturday November 23d from 10:00am to 3:00pm at the Friendship Centre and we are very lucky to have Bev Lambert coming on that date. Bev is a well-known Metis jigger and jigging will be the focus of this first event!


We are letting you all know well in advance with the hope that as many children and the caregivers caring for Metis children can attend. Please see attached poster and RSVP info. Thank you!
