You can still get tickets to From Talk to Table: Natural History
Join us for a Sunday afternoon highlights tour of our new exhibition, Legacies of Confederation: A New Look at Manitoba History, with Curator of Cultural Anthropology, Dr. Maureen Matthews. The tour will be followed by a discussion and delicious food (*faspa) at Peg Beer Co.
For First Nations and Métis people, Confederation had shocking consequences. Nothing in the 200 year history of the fur trade prepared them to be overrun by hundreds of thousands of settlers. They had no way of predicting that the moderately respectful relationships which prevailed during the fur trade would be replaced by racism and political arrogance.
Dr. Maureen Matthews will examine the legacy of Confederation and its impact on the multicultural, multi-faith, and multilingual community in Manitoba prior to 1870. Discover objects and artworks related to Treaty Negotiations, the “Indian Group of Seven,” and Idle No More.
Space for this event is limited, so don’t wait to get your tickets!
