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.
