The Le Musée de Saint-Boniface Museum is hosting two free walking tours this summer filled with fascinating stories about the indigineous people and settlers in the Winnipeg area. The tours started on Wednesday, June 30, and ends on Saturday, August 28. Both tours last an hour and are open to all ages.

“Women who made us” focuses on the women who contributed to the growth and success of the Winnipeg community. The tour stops at markers commenmorating authors, artists, architects, and contemporary artisans.

“Moccasin walk” shares stories of the Métis people of the Red River and how our understanding can be deepened about them to celebrate their history and stand in solidarity with them. Stories include self-governance, buffalo hunts, the spirit of the miller entrepreneurs, ferry operator McDoug, and the tragic fate of Elzéar Goulet.

Each tour is limited to eight people, and reservations are required online. For more information about the tours and to make a reservation, visit msbm.mb.ca/group-programs. When you make a reservation, you will be asked how many people are in your party.
