Manitoba's Virtual Scavenger Hunt - Clue #1

Walk toward the house and find a group of people who seem to be very focused on their work. They are doing a much-loved traditional art… Métis beadwork. They are the Riels, a Métis family with a long narrow farm that stretched out from the Red River. Louis Riel, a founder of Manitoba, lived on this land. He defended the rights of the Métis people, which led to the creation of the province of Manitoba that we know and love today. Happy Manitoba 150!
