AMA presentation on the Michel Band exhibition

On September 23rd, 2017, staff of the Musée Heritage Museum presented at the joint conference of the Alberta Museums Association and the Western Museum Association, “Unite 2017“.

Joanne White, Celina Loyer and Jessie Loyer talked about how the exhibit came to be and how the Band and museum worked together to tell this important story. Celina explained about the struggles the Band has faced over their enfranchisement and loss of their reserve. Jessie described the oral history project that she did with a number of Band Elders.

The Michel Band exhibition runs until January 7, 2018 at the Musée Héritage Museum in St. Albert.
