A smorgasbord of free and paid activities, the fest provides a glimpse into aboriginal creativity through art, music, dance, photography film and gastronomy.

Films will be shown at different venues, including a world premiere of Mitchif, by André Gladu on the memory of Métis leaders Louis Riel and Gabriel Dumont.

In conjuction with the festival, Malecite artist Ginette Aubin’s exhibition Le chemin des appartenances will be on view from July 17-August 10 at the Canadian guild of Crafts.
