Back to Batoche Days 50th Anniversary

Back To Previous Page
  • Back to Batoche Days takes place at Batoche, the historic homeland of the Métis. Over the years, this four-day, in-person event has been an important opportunity to share Métis culture, build relationships, honour the Métis veterans and connect to the land where Métis heroes fought in the 1885 Northwest Resistance.

    This annual celebration, held on the national historic site of “The Battle of Batoche,” represents a movement toward reconciliation as approximately 10,000 people, Métis and non-Métis, gather to share in the celebration of the Métis history, culture and language. Back to Batoche Days provides the opportunity to preserve and promote Métis culture through storytelling, fiddling, jigging, square dancing, music, Métis artists, traditional land use teachings, voyageur games, chuckwagon racing, sports, contemporary games, Indigenous language and traditional food. It also offers a space to reconnect with friends and family and develop new meaningful relationships.
