Métis Heritage

Expressing his enthusiasm for local history through song and storytelling, Franco-Manitoban performer Rob Malo, also known as Tibert le Voyageur, will lead us on a journey across the muddy waters of the Assiniboine River to Winnipeg’s historic French Quarter to explore the French-Métis traditional homeland. Good footwear is recommended for this seventy-five minute tour, which will begin and conclude in the atrium of the VIA’s Union Station.
