To celebrate National Indigenous History Month, the Royal Saskatchewan Museum (RSM) is streaming a special series of online programs to recognize the unique cultures and contributions of the Indigenous people of Saskatchewan.
Tipi Camp Display – Video Tour – June 13
Enjoy a virtual visit of one of the museum’s most popular displays. Follow Theresa Walter, First Nations Program Specialist to explore and hear a fascinating story.
National Indigenous Peoples Day – June 21
Starting with a special video message from Knowledge Keeper Harold Lavallee, the RSM is also marking National Indigenous Peoples Day and the summer solstice, as Canadians across the country celebrate the heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding achievements of First Nations, Inuit and Métis.
Both of the programs are courtesy of the Traditional Knowledge Keepers program supported by the Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation. Also, throughout the month, the RSM online platforms will be featuring some of the art and artists who helped create the First Nations and other museum galleries.
These videos will be released on social media and made available at https://royalsaskmuseum.ca/rsm/education/blog.
