Good morning, Trecia,
As requested. 😊
The Canadian Museum of History is currently inviting members of First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities to contribute their stories and oral histories to an upcoming exhibition about the international experiences of Indigenous peoples.
Indigenous Stories Beyond Borders (the exhibition’s working title) will highlight the perspectives of groups and individuals that have travelled the world as diplomats, warriors/soldiers, performers, artists, scholars and athletes, over many centuries.
We are seeking the help of individuals and organizations in reaching out to members of the community who would be willing to share their story for possible inclusion in the exhibition.
Please find attached communication material describing the project. We would be most grateful if you could share this information through the means at your disposal.
We thank you in advance for your collaboration. We invite you to visit historymuseum.ca/indigenous-storiesfor more information.
Should you have any question, please contact us at:
Migwech and kindest regards,
