The Métis flag flies at St. Michael School
Central Urban Métis Federation Incorporated (CUMFI) and the Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools are in partnership to improve the learning opportunities for Métis students attending Catholic schools. This year they launched a Métis education program at St. Michael’s Community School. The goal is to have all teachers working to include Métis content in their classroom programs and to see Métis ways encouraged throughout the school. Many new resources have been brought to the school to be used by teachers and they are looking for ways to involve Métis people in supporting Métis culture at the school. In recognition of this program a Flag Raising Ceremony was held at the school on September 9. Representatives from CUMFI and GSCS were on hand to participate in the event. Senator Nora Cummings provided a prayer and then was assisted by CUMFI President Shirley Isbister with the official raising of the Métis flag while students and staff sang the Métis national anthem.
