Role Model Visit to Fort William Ontario
Angelica Laurin attended the Métis Nation of Ontario Annual General Assembly Youth Events: August 19-23, 2010 in Thunder Bay, Ontario.
My Role Model visit went very well. They had all the elements I needed set up before hand. The audience I spoke to was very attentive and had many questions about the program and myself.
I loved being able to participate in touring Fort William and wearing one of their costumes, a Métis stamp dress and moccasins. The fort is a very well thought out place and everyone is into character very seriously. It’s quite funny.
It was also nice to learn about their concerns and their story, as well as learning about my Métis culture. Through the true re-enactment that Fort William has achieved, I felt very proud to be a part of such a rich culture and to be Métis.
I thank the National Aboriginal Role Model Program and the Métis Nation of Ontario for making this trip possible for me.
