A number of events are planned in the Battlefords to celebrate Métis Culture Week which runs from March 27 to April 1.

The week was launched with a flag-raising ceremony Monday outside Battleford Town Hall.

“We put it up earlier last year. But we needed a new one, and they had a new flag change,” Mayor Ames Leslie told battlefordsNOW. “Local president Bill Kennedy [Western Region 1A, Métis Nation – Saskatchewan], a group of members of the local chapter, and an Elder came by, and we put it up.
