Madonna Hamel, a friend of mine and an artist from Val Marie, sent me this poster. The rich Métis culture and heritage of the northern Great Plains will be marked, in a small way, on August 3, 2017 as a group of us begin our walk from Swift Current to Fort Battleford. The Battleford Trail is important to Métis history, and so also to the history (and the present-day) of all Canadians. More on that coming up! In the meantime, I’m looking forward to learning more from this vital community!

This sounds like an amazing walk Matthew! Wish we could come with you, but we are looking forward to hearing and learning more as you go and when you get back!
Wish you could come out on the walk too! Will be thinking of you on those windy and sunlit plains!
