Take a 90-Minute Tour at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights to Learn About Indigenous Life

Celebrate National Aboriginal History Month by learning about sacred teachings at this Winnipeg museum.

Canadian Museum for Human Rights in Winnipeg

A partnership between the Canadian Museum for Human Rights and seven elders from Anishinaabe, Cree and Dakota nations, Mikinak-Keya Spirit Tour focuses on the seven sacred teachings and animals that shape the indigenous way of life: humility (wolf), wisdom (beaver), respect (buffalo), honesty (sabe/bigfoot), truth (turtle), courage (bear) and love (eagle). Guides, gifted with knowledge from the elders, take visitors through the Indigenous Perspectives gallery and around the museum to observe the architecture from an indigenous viewpoint. A bird’s eye photo of the museum, which resembles a paw print, represents the wolfs humility. The 90-minute tour includes the Tower of Hope with a panoramic view of the city.
