Celebrate National Indigenous History Month With The RSM

Released on June 1, 2020

To celebrate National Indigenous History Month, the Royal Saskatchewan Museum (RSM) is streaming a special series of online programs to recognize the unique cultures and contributions of the Indigenous people of Saskatchewan.

“National Indigenous History Month is an important opportunity for anyone to learn about, share in and enjoy Indigenous culture in all its richness and diversity,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Gene Makowsky said.  “The RSM stands as a world-class museum with dynamic and culturally appropriate programing for visitors of all ages.”

Elder Hazel and the 7 Grandfather Teachings – May 28 – July 9

In celebration of National Indigenous History Month, Elder Hazel Dixon recounts the seven Grandfather Teachings.  They are seven principles that form the foundation of an Indigenous way of life: wisdom, love, respect, courage, honesty, humility and truth.  Together, these seven teachings are gifts that help us respect the Creator, the Earth and each other.  The short videos released on Thursdays until July 9 are available on the RSM website at https://royalsaskmuseum.ca/rsm/visit/event-calendar/item?id=944.

Tipi Camp Display – Video Tour – June 13

Enjoy a virtual visit of one of the museum’s most popular displays.  Follow Theresa Walter, First Nations Program Specialist to explore and hear a fascinating story.

National Indigenous Peoples Day – June 21

Starting with a special video message from Knowledge Keeper Harold Lavallee, the RSM is also marking National Indigenous Peoples Day and the summer solstice, as Canadians across the country celebrate the heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding achievements of First Nations, Inuit and Métis.

Both of the programs are courtesy of the Traditional Knowledge Keepers program supported by the Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation.  Also, throughout the month, the RSM online platforms will be featuring some of the art and artists who helped create the First Nations and other museum galleries.

These videos will be released on social media and made available at https://royalsaskmuseum.ca/rsm/education/blog.
