This music festival began in 2015 and BC Métis Federation has been an ongoing partner
to support the annual celebration of music, including Métis fiddling, hosted by Peyak.

BC Metis Federation has continued to support Métis culture through these summer music festivals and was in Terrace recently supporting the Skeena Valley Music Festival.

BC Métis Federation President Henry stated, “This was another excellent and I am so proud of the leadership from Peyak. The community in Prince George faces ongoing forest fire smoke and fire impacts ye the festival carried forward successfully with hundreds over the weekend.”
