This two-day event will take place at the Woodland Cultural Centre, the former Mohawk Institute Residential School, on September 29th & 30th 2018. The event will coincide with National Orange Shirt Day on September 30th: a day which Canadians are encouraged to stand in solidarity with survivors of the residential school system.

The Canadian Museum of History is currently inviting members of First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities to contribute their stories and oral histories to an upcoming exhibition about the international experiences of Indigenous peoples.
Indigenous Stories Beyond Borders (the exhibition’s working title) will highlight the perspectives of groups and individuals that have travelled the world as diplomats, warriors/soldiers, performers, artists, scholars and athletes, over many centuries.
We are seeking the help of individuals and organizations in reaching out to Indigenous community members who would be willing to share their story for possible inclusion in the exhibition.
