Dr. Amelia Fay

Curator of Anthropology & the HBC Museum Collection

Amelia Fay is Curator of Anthropology and the HBC Museum Collection at the Manitoba Museum. She received her BA in Anthropology from the University of Manitoba (2004), an MA in Archaeology (2008) from Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN), and her Doctoral degree from MUN (2016). Amelia’s doctoral research focused on Inuit-European contact along the Labrador coast, and her research interests have expanded to explore the effects of colonialism and Indigenous-European contact throughout Canada. As an anthropological archaeologist, she studies material culture to better understand the human experience, and finds ways to share knowledge and the Manitoba Museum’s collections with a wide range of audiences. Amelia joined the Museum in 2013, and researches and cares for more than 40,000 artifacts, primarily of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis origin.
