This Mother’s Day we invite you to join us for a journey through traditional Indigenous parenting with the “From Talk to Table: Indigenous Motherhood” Tour. This exploration of parenting throughout time on Turtle Island will include an in-depth tour of Indigenous artifacts in the Museum Galleries such as cradleboards and baby moccasins, but will also look more deeply at parenting and birthing practises, coming-of age-ceremonies, and how traditional Indigenous parenting is being revitalized in the aftermath of colonialism and residential schools.
“From Talk to Table: Indigenous Motherhood” will run at 11 am and 2 pm on Sunday, May 14, and will be led by Tashina Houle-Schlup, Head of Indigenous Programming & Engagement at the Manitoba Museum. Tashina is Anishinaabe and a graduate from Brandon University with a BA in English and History. She is a quillwork artist and is passionate about sharing Indigenous culture and history.
The tour will run for approximately one hour, and will include a short visit behind-the-scenes to our Museum storage lab. After the tour, participants are invited to join us for tea, bannock, and further conversation.
Thank you for your interest. This event is now SOLD OUT!
