The Historic Sault Ste. Marie Métis Council was thrilled to welcome the public to the grand opening of their long-awaited cultural centre on Saturday.

The grand opening also featured a variety of activities like open-house tours, Métis workshops, traditional foods, games, music, dance, and special guest speakers.
