Celebrate Métis Week at Lougheed House with the launch of The Premier and His Grandmother

Combining both biography and history, The Premier and His Grandmother: Peter Lougheed, Lady Belle, and the Legacy of Métis Identity, by writer and researcher Doris Jeanne MacKinnon, introduces readers to two compelling and complex public figures—former Alberta Premier Peter Lougheed and his Métis grandmother, Isabella Clark Hardisty Lougheed.

Hear about both figures from MacKinnon and explore how Métis identity, political activism, and colonial institutional power shaped the lives and legacies of both.
