Rights and Indigenous Peoples in Canada (Tour)

Middle and Senior Years (Grades 7-12)

90 minutes

This tour will inspire students to take a positive role in reconciliation among Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples by presenting stories and perspectives found throughout the Museum. Highlights include a 360-degree film in a circular “basket” theatre, a four-storey clay artwork, an 800-year-old moccasin print, and the carved Bentwood Box used by Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Participants will learn about the connection between today’s social issues and historic violations, and understand the power of breaking down stereotypes and using respectful language.

Students celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary as they focus on the Canada 150 themes of reconciliation, and diversity and inclusion.
