The Canadian History Hall is home to the permanent galleries inside the Museum of History. The galleries underwent a big transformation in time for the 150th anniversary of the country in 2017. The path leading to the entrance is lined with stylized landmarks and activities across the country. I photographed some of them as I passed through.
The Hall is divided up into three pods. The first one starts from time immemorial and goes to the end of the French and Indian War. It begins with the Anishinaabe creation story, spoken by a narrator in that language, with French and English subtitles at the bottom of the screen.
A display is set up with a model of the cliff at a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Alberta: Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump. We'll pick up here tomorrow.

What a coincidence. I just saw an exhibit at the Heard Museum that was about a creation story from the Navajo culture spoken in their language with translations on the wall. It was a sound and light exhibit.ReplyDelete
