Smoky Lake honoured to be included in Métis Crossing groundbreaking ceremonies
“Piquette thanked Elder Crerar for the beautiful blessing to open the ceremony and, speaking from the heart, pointed out that we had all gathered on this land, under this tent for a reason.
We were not there because we answered an incite or to report on the event.
We were there because, ‘This is where the Métis culture began, and it contintues to be an improtant place of traditional culture and commerce.’
Piquette continued by saying Métis Crossing is an important time and place in Albertan and Canadian history, and will be now always be a gathering place to education, celebrate, and continue making history.”
