For the first time ever, the Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre is pleased to offer First Nation Interpretive programming in the Museum’s First Nation exhibit hall.

On Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., through July and August, visitors to the Museum will be invited to learn about Native culture by taking part in and watching various demonstrations.

Weekly demonstrations will consist of traditional drumming, storytelling, beading, basketry, moccasin making, and more, showcased in numerous ways by members of Saugeen First Nation and Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nation communities.

This program is made possible thanks to the generous support of Bruce Power.
