Thank you to our Red River Métis Government, the Manitoba Métis Federation, for funding all of our Métis Cultural Programs. Without this financial support, our programs would not exist.
Seven Oaks Métis Capote Workshop will invite Métis Youth to learn more about their Métis Culture through the creation of their own capote. The workshop will provide participants with the knowledge and history of Métis style clothing and teach the skills to continue the artistry of capote making.
Seven Oaks Métis Council Sash Weaving program focuses on bringing youth together through learning the art of sash weaving. Youth will help each other focus on the teachings and engage in conversation in regard to skills and understanding. As one student guides another they empower their strengths by helping each other with guidance and knowledge and information.
Our Beading Circle will bring together Métis youth from Winnipeg and surrounding areas to learn about their Métis history and culture through beading lessons and learning about the traditional style of Métis beadwork. In turn, our Beading Circle will pass along these teachings and our history to the youth who will be able to pass down this knowledge and history to future Métis generations.
Seven Oaks Métis Council Fiddle Program will connect Métis youth to their Métis Culture by teaching them how to play traditional fiddle music. The Fiddle Program will help to develop the next generation of musicians, a skill which allows them to provide entertainment and the potential to earn an income.
