2010 Back to Batoche Days Festival
Hello Métis Youth!
We are back from the Back to Batoche Days festival! The festival was an 8 day event held in Saskatoon at the historic site of the Battle of Batoche. This year's festival was bigger than ever to mark the 125th anniversary of the Métis Nation.
We had an amazing time with the Métis Centre of NAHO's youth group and staff.
We camped out right on site to ensure that we would not miss any of the great activities!
There were beading and capote making workshops, bannock bake offs, fiddling, jigging and square dancing performances, a rodeo and much more!
It was a great week that showcased Métis pride and culture!
Were you at Batoche this year (or in other years)? If so, please write in and tell us about your favourite Batoche memory.
This picture is at the front entrance of Batoche on the second day of the festival. There was a Metis in Motion 5 km walk/run that we participated in. It was a great activity to tour the historic site!
Stay tuned for more pictures of the Batoche!
Thanks for tuning into our blog!
