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!
June 21 is National Indigenous Peoples Day
This is a day for all Canadians to recognize and celebrate the unique heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding contributions of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. The Canadian Constitution recognizes these three groups as Aboriginal peoples, also known as Indigenous peoples.
Join us on Explorer’s Point
Museum open 10 am – 4:30 pm
We invite you to join the Mini Birch Bark Canoe Workshop hosted by Joanne Labelle. This is a free workshop, but please register in advance so we have enough materials for everyone by calling the museum (705 744 5495), email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our gift shop.
We have a brand new exhibit for you to experience – an interactive app come and explore!
If you haven’t had time to visit the Canoe Build (outdoor exhibit), this would be a great time – it’s looking more like a canoe every day!
We have beautiful new crafts in our Gift Shop by talented local artists.
We are also selling these T-shirts in our gift shop.
Entry to the museum is free for this special event
Some of the bark for the canoe has been harvested!
Can you see it starting to take shape?
