Jacqueline created a wonderful experience for our visiting elementary classes, who were taking part in the Library’s celebration of Alberta’s centennial. She had the entire group of 125 children (and their parents and teachers!) entranced as she talked about her Metis heritage and the culture of the fur trade. Her hilarious re-enactment of a fur trader’s portage (complete with volunteers in furry hats and Metis sashes) kept the audience engaged and asking questions. Displays of animal bones, teeth and fur as well as native toys and implements added an extra element of interest. Everyone enjoyed the presentation, and we would be glad to host Jacqueline again in the future!
