Stories of the Old Ones: Hunter and Fisher from Sheltered Water
Four thousand years ago in southeastern Manitoba, a young man we call the Hunter and Fisher from Sheltered Water was laid to rest by his relatives along the shores of the Lee River. The discovery of his remains and personal belongings led to the development of a collaborative research project between Sagkeeng Anicinabe Government and the Manitoba Museum.
This book chronicles the project from the recovery, study, and reburial of this Ancestor. The book weaves together Indigenous Knowledge from the late Elder Mark Thompson and other community members, along with archaeological research, natural history, ethnographic collections, contemporary Indigenous art, and stunning photography.
Panel Discussion at 7 pm in the Auditorium.
Book Signing and Reception at 8 pm in the Foyer.
Tea, coffee, and bannock will be served.
Doors will open at 6:30 pm. Children welcome. This event is free of charge. No RSVP required.
