Description

In collaboration with the Métis Nation of Alberta, Library and Archives Canada, University of Alberta join us for a special presentation by Marilyn Lizée from the Métis Nation of Alberta's Cultural Committee to launch the opening of Library and Archives Canada exhibition that explores Métis culture and history.

Library and Archives Canada has a wide variety of archival documents pertaining to the Métis Nation, including textual records, photographs, artwork, maps, stamps and sound recordings. This exhibition explores the portrayal of Métis Citizens—some of whom are "hiding in plain sight"—in art and photographic collections and the accompanying descriptions, and aims to foster a better understanding of the history and the culture of the Métis Nation.
