Métis Culture Showcase in Surrey

(Surrey, BC) BC Metis Federation continues to support Métis culture as a priority throughout BC. This past weekend the BC Métis Federation and partner community Nova Métis Heritage Association (Nova) partnered up once again to host the Métis pavilion as part of the Fusion Festival.

The Michif Historical and Cultural Preservation Society was key in setting up a historic Métis trading post sharing the space with Nova that provided information about their organization in Surrey. BC Mètis Federation supported Mètis music and dance with performances from JJ Lavallee on the fiddle supported by Rowan and Quinn Pickering jigging.

BC Métis Federation President Henry stated, “This weekend provided Métis culture and entertainment for thousands at our Métis pavilion. There continues to be strong interest in Métis culture and the entertainment we arranged was very well received over the two days.”

BC Métis Federation President Henry concluded, “Thank you to our team; Sherry Daniels, JJ Lavallee, Derrick Whiteskycloud, Rowan Pickering, Quinn Pickering, Ken Fisher, Joyce Fisher, and several of the Nova board members. The month of August is going to be very powerful with three major Métis music festivals; Terrace, McLeese Lake, and Prince George. We are proud to continue this strong support for Métis culture and thanks to our volunteers who make it successful!”
