One event on July 23, 2022 at 11:00 am
This 90-minute guided walking tour of the Exchange District looks at various monuments and the stories they tell, with a focus on the Indigenous perspectives that are absent. Participants will actively engage in dialogue to reposition the story of Winnipeg – a city built on shared lands of Treaty No. 1 territory and the homeland of the Red River Métis. The tour will encourage participants to reconsider how we commemorate our history by visiting 4 monuments in this neighbourhood.
The tour starts and ends in the Manitoba Museum foyer and follows an accessible route of about 1.2 km. Masks are encouraged, and participants should not attend if feeling unwell. Registration will close one hour prior to the tour.
Space is limited and registration is required. Ticket price includes admission to the Museum Galleries after the tour.
There are two tour dates available:
Saturday, July 16, 2022 @ 11:00 am
Saturday, July 23, 2022 @ 11:00 am
This program was developed in partnership between the Manitoba Museum and the City of Winnipeg, Indigenous Relations Division. The partnership is part of the Welcoming Winnipeg: Reconciling our History initiative that aims to respond to the national dialogue in major Canadian cities to re-examine historical markers and place names to resolve the absence of Indigenous perspectives, experiences, and contributions in the stories remembered and commemorated in Canadian cities. The Manitoba Museum’s Learning & Engagement department is committed to community engagement, outreach, and dialogue.
