Archaeology has laid the foundation for the Asiniskow Ithiniwak (Rocky Cree) in northern Manitoba to reclaim their history by revitalizing stories of cultural identity.
This began with the finding of ancestral remains of Kayasochi Kikawenow (Our Mother from Long Ago) on Southern Indian Lake in 1993. Her tools and remains provided the foundation to the picture book “Pisim Finds Her Miskanow,” which represents a pivotal time in Cree history, prior to contact with Europeans, known as Protocontact.
As a continuation of this Indigenous research, our very own Kevin Brownlee, together with a number of research teams from across Canada and United States, conceptualized the “Six Seasons of the Rocky Cree” project. This ongoing seven-year project will focus on the late Woodland, Protocontact and early Postcontact periods that will help regenerate the identity and recreate the remaining stories of the Rocky Cree.
Join Kevin as he talks about how he and the Six Seasons team will revitalize and reclaim the culture, identity and history of the Rocky Cree through artifacts, oral history and other educational resources.
The Brown Bag Lunch Series will resume in Fall 2018.
All talks in the Brown Bag Lunch Series are included with admission to any of our three venues (Museum, Science Gallery or Planetarium), or FREE for members! Bring your lunch, and join us in the Auditorium for a noon-hour talk from one of our amazing Museum staff members.
