The Métis: Lifestyle and the Voyageur Education Kit

Métis people played important roles in the development of Western Canada. They were voyageurs, guides, interpreters, freemen, farmers, and fur trade employees who as they moved West, helped establish and settle many communities. This kit contains objects and resource materials that can help introduce a new unit, provide an overview, or aid a lesson plan.

Cost: $20/week per kit
