Parks Canada welcomes you to a very special knowledge sharing series. Included with your daily admission to Lower Fort Garry National Historic Site, join us in the Visitor Centre theatre and immerse yourself in the cultural perspectives of First Nations artists through writing, film and hands-on artistry.
- July 9 kicks us off with a book club and Q&A with writer and playwright Ian Ross.
- July 23, celebrated film producer Lisa Meeches joins us for a showing of the 2012 film We Were Children.
- August 6, Elder Carl Stone shares with us lessons and cultural protocols in southern Manitoba.
- August 20 & September 3, artist and maker Chris Wabie, who constructed the new wigwams at Lower Fort Garry's Gabeshiwin last summer, teaches us the crafts of rush matting and willow basket weaving.
We are beyond excited to bring you a series you won't want to miss, and we look forward to seeing you this summer at Lower Fort Garry!
