Hiding In Plain Sight – The Story of the Metis People in Red Deer- Cancelled due to Covid-19

October 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

- free

Gilles Allard is a passionate advocate for the Metis people and their culture. He was born in the Red River area of Manitoba, the heartland of the Metis people. He speaks three languages- English, French and Michif, the Metis dialect. In the time he has lived in Reid Deer he has promoted Metis dance and music, along with his two children. He was instrumental in getting the Metis flag permanently flown at city hall. Recently he made a short documentary on the Metis in Red Deer titled “Hiding in Plain Sight”. The documentary provides an overview of the unique role the Metis people playing in settling and developing this area, establishing the first sawmills, farms, ranches, homesteads and businesses in the area. The first hand accounts of people in the documentary provide a powerful story, one punctuated with challenges and great successes. This film presentation is a must see for people interested in Red Deer history and culture.
