School Program


Rights and Indigenous Peoples in Canada

School program details

This tour will inspire students to take a positive role in reconciliation among Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples by presenting stories and perspectives found throughout the Museum. 

Highlights include a 360-degree film in a circular “basket” theatre, a four-storey clay artwork, an 800-year-old moccasin print, and the carved Bentwood Box used by Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Participants will learn about the connection between today’s social issues and historic violations, and understand the power of breaking down stereotypes and using respectful language.

Level: Grades 9–12
Program Length: 120 minutes
