Our annual 6-kilometre Louis Riel walk commemorates the journey his relatives and friends made when they carried his body six miles to his resting place at the Saint-Boniface Cathedral. Each year, we walk to the St. Margaret’s Church Historical Site because of its significance to Métis Albertans.
First built in 1912 on the north shore of Hastings Lake, southeast of Sherwood Park, St. Margaret’s is a place where many Métis are laid to rest. Join us this year on November 12 for the Louis Riel Commemorative Walk to honour the courage and dedication of Riel and his followers.
