In Riel’s Footsteps is an outdoor guided tour of the cemetery, a theatrical experience that makes learning about French-Canadian and Métis heritage fun and exciting. Your guide is Angélique Nolin, Western Canada’s first lay school teacher, a dynamic character who knows a lot about Manitoba’s history.  She makes sure your visit is anything but a dull history lesson.  From the arrival of the first explorers to the birth of a province, St. Boniface cemetery tells the story of 150 years of courage and perseverance. Tickets are available for purchase at the museum store.
