Join Colin (Uncle Funkle) on a bike tour of Winnipeg`s downtown as he tells the tale of the creation of the Métis nation, a mixed-race people, native to the Canadian prairies, who stood up to colonial oppression and, in the process, brought about the creation of the province of Manitoba. Their struggle to defend their homeland is only part of the story. Later, the Métis nation will need to fight for its very existence.
The tour will visit several key locations of the Métis and manitoban history and will tell a version of the story often left out of history class.
