Road Trip to the RM of Taché

Road Trip to the RM of Taché is a Day of Art, Culture & Fun!

With a road trip to the RM of Tache, you can explore the adventures of St. Genevieve, Lorette, Landmark and more for an exciting day full of fun!

Borealis Beading (St. Genevieve)

During your road trip to the RM of Taché, booking an experience with Borealis Beading is an absolute must! Not only will you learn the art of loom beading (beginner), finger weaving (beginner), quilting (beginner), and creating a pair of leather mitts or moccasins (advanced), but also dive into the cultural and historical significance of the Métis people.

Borealis Beading is owned and operated by Melanie Gamache, a Manitoba Métis beadwork artisan who started beading in 2015. Melanie has always been a creative individual, but her talent for beadwork has developed along with her passion for sharing the Métis culture and history relating to beadwork. Borealis Beading has grown from creating her very own beadwork pieces to organizing workshops, hosting Métis cultural learning experiences and carrying basic beading supplies required to start you on your beading journey.

All experiences are delivered in a style reflective of the traditional beading circle format where friends and family would meet to share stories and talk about their day while passing on the traditional art of beadwork. Borealis Beading hopes you leave a renewed appreciation for beading, finger weaving, quilting, and the Métis culture.

Centre of Canada (Lorette)

Any road trip to the RM of Taché is not complete without visiting the Centre of Canada. This must-see spot is not only a beautiful site but also the perfect place to celebrate Canada. The Centre of Canada is, as you probably guessed, THE center of Canada where East meets West (longitudinal 96° 48’ 35).

This 20-acre park is an inclusive space where all people can gather and experience the diversity of Canadian identity, culture, and history. Trek along the landscaped paths and examine the interpretive plaques, enjoy a picnic by the “Little Canada” natural playground, and simply immerse yourself in the feeling of being in the center of our beautiful country.
