WHAT IS THE PRINCE GEORGE METIS ELDERS SOCIETY?
The Prince George Métis Elders Society is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving quality of life for our Elders, as well as educating our community on what it means to be Métis.
WHAT WE DO: We raise awareness of Métis culture through community involvement such as presentations in schools. Hold gatherings for social events, holiday dinners, picnics and other outdoor activities such as berry picking. We also organize bi-weekly Potlucks, weekly craft days and celebrate a monthly Family Fun Nights. » Read More

An elder is a person who is still growing, still a learner, still with potential, and whose life continues to have within it promise for and connections to the future. An elder is still in pursuit of happiness, joy, and pleasure and his or her birthright to remain intact. Moreover, an elder is person who deserves respect, honor and whose work it is to synthesize wisdom from life long experience and formulate this into a legacy for future generations.
