The Métis have often been called “The Flower Beadwork People” – a nickname attributable to their extraordinary floral beadwork designs, which are well-known in Métis culture.
The Louis Riel Institute (LRI) has continued this tradition through The Flower Beadwork Circle, a group that meets every Wednesday evening to keep the craft alive. During these meetings, members work on individual beading projects and share their knowledge and ideas for beading ideas, patterns, and techniques.
