A huge congratulations to the Wanuskewin Heritage Park Centre for receiving the Canadian Museums Association’s Award of Outstanding Achievement for Exhibitions!
The Exhibition award category recognizes exceptional exhibitions “that effectively and distinctively contribute to increase public understanding.” The WHP exhibition does just that by allowing visitors to engage with and learn of the culture and heritage of the Northern Plains Peoples. The exhibition focuses on immersive displays and interactive galleries that convey a shared experience and connect visitors to the land, the nations of the Northern plains, and the ancient gathering place of Wanuskewin.
This exhibition was brought to life through the dedication and collaboration of many teams, including indigenous advisors and community members. We are proud to have been part of a project that increases cultural understanding through the sharing of indigenous voices and the passing on of indigenous knowledge and heritage.
