Peyton Habinski is a proud, 11 year old Metis performer. At age 7, she started jigging lessons with Dean Davis and quickly fell in love with the cultural dance. Since then, she has performed at several different Metis events such as; Goldeyes baseball game Metis night, MMF’s CRO mobile bus launch, National Indigenous Peoples Day in Selkirk and many Family Fun Nights throughout school divisions in Manitoba.
Peyton won the gold medal in the Festival Du Voyageur jigging contest in the 10-13 year old category, along with gold in and bronze in the 9 and under. TV Ontario released an Indigenous documentary series, Raven’s Quest, which featured Peyton for her connection to the Metis culture. Peyton’s goals are to continue performing at different Metis events throughout the community and spread cultural awareness.
