Tracey-Mae Chambers will be at the museum installing one of her weaving pieces of art. She will decide once she arrives next Friday morning where she will actually do the weavings – could be inside or outside, and that is one of the interesting things about her work.
Everyone is welcome to come and watch her create her work.
Even though Marcel Labelle (@Birch Bark Canoes by Mahigan) won’t be here building the canoe this weekend, you can still hear him speak about the different parts of birch bark canoes in our new outdoor display. Just use your phones camera to scan the QR codes!
Marcel Labelle launched his double-hull canoe which is named “Birth of a Nation”. This is a teaching canoe, telling the story of our country, settlement on Turtle Island with our First Peoples and Europeans. It is a powerful message and well received by those gathered to celebrate with ceremony. This canoe is now on display inside the museum for the remainder of the season.
We invite you to come to visit. Marcel’s book The Knowledge Canoe is available and he is always willing to write a quick note inside your book.
We have new artisans who have their work in the giftshop! We have t-shirts, sweatshirts and hoodies available.
