Louis Riel Day Celebration

Louis Riel Day Celebration

Saturday November 12, 2016 at 8pm

Scotiabank Dance Centre, Vancouver, BC

 

Thank you for making our 11th annual Louis Riel Day Celebration a great success!

This year's celebration featured Yvonne Chartrand in Eagle Spirit and our Louis Riel Métis Dancers. 

Eagle Spirit is a contemporary solo choreographed and performed by Artistic Director Yvonne Chartrand, which probes themes of death and rebirth, and the eagle’s connection to the spirit world. 

The Louis Riel Métis Dancers - V’ni Dansi’s traditional dance group - performed the joyous jigs, reels and square dances that Métis culture is famed for, accompanied by the high spirited strains of the JJ Lavallee Band.
