Indigenous Stories Beyond Borders – Seeking Indigenous Stories For An Exhibition Project

The Canadian Museum of History is in the early stages of planning, designing and developing an exhibition that focuses extensively on the international experiences of Indigenous Peoples of Canada.

To highlight the agency, perspectives and points of view of First Nations, Inuit and Métis Peoples, the exhibition team is seeking input from Indigenous communities and individuals who would be willing to share their stories with Canada and the world.

Tentatively called Indigenous Stories Beyond Borders, with a planned opening in 2021, this exhibition will share the stories of how Indigenous Peoples in what is now Canada have asserted — and continue to assert — their sovereignty and identities beyond borders.

Designed to explore the long history of Indigenous Peoples, the exhibition will highlight groups and individuals who have travelled the world such as diplomats, warriors/soldiers, performers, artists, athletes and scholars over many centuries.

Through integrating historical and contemporary accounts of Indigenous Peoples and their material culture, these stories will focus on Indigenous leadership, vision, creativity and courage.
