In Riel’s Footsteps is a bilingual outdoor guided tour of the Saint‐Boniface Cathedral’s cemetery, an interactive 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 “hole” 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, this cemetery tells the story of over 200  years of courage and perseverance.
