St. Boniface Cathedral Cemetery

St. Boniface Cathedral Cemetery is located on the grounds of the St. Boniface Cathedral.  Some very important Manitobans are buried here including Jean Baptiste Lagimodière, Jean-Baptiste de La Vérendrye, Chief One Arrow, and Louis Riel.  Every year on November 16, the day Louis Riel died, Métis people gather at Louis Riel's grave to remember him and talk about the past, present and future of the Métis people.  In this photograph, someone is looking at Louis Riel's tombstone.
