Mikinak-Keya Spirit Tour

 

Mikinak-Keya Spirit tour is a distinct cultural experience presenting an Indigenous perspective on rights and responsibilities.

Mikinak-Keya Spirit Tour invites visitors to discover the powerful connection between First Nations’ sacred knowledge and worldviews and the Museum’s architecture and human rights mandate. Inspired by ceremony and living oral traditions, this tour offers unique insight into the seven sacred teachings that call on each of us to take responsibility for how we live and treat each other.  This special tour is the result of an ongoing collaboration between the Museum and a group of seven First Nations Elders from this region.

The tour focuses on the Museum’s architecture and use of space rather than the exhibits. Visitors will experience singing, storytelling, works of art and amazing views.

The 90-minute tour is offered at quiet times of the day, allowing visitors to enjoy a truly contemplative experience. Either the early morning tour or evening tour provides rare moments of serenity and beauty to deepen our understanding of First Nations’ teachings and to reflect on our own views around human rights.

Mikinak-Keya Spirit Tour is one of the many ways the Museum fulfills its commitment to enhance understanding human rights from multiple perspectives and to foster respect and dialogue.
