*UPDATE: Due to COVID-19 restrictions announced by the Alberta Government on November 24th, 2020, the format will change to a presentation style in the exhibit seating and physical distancing in place. There will NOT be a guided tour portion, but visitors are welcome to view the exhibit on their own after the presentation concludes. COVID guidelines will be followed. Masks are required in the museum.
Patrick and Marrisa Mitsuing, co-creators and curators of the exhibit Powwow! Ohcîwin The Origins (pictured left), will take attendees through the exhibit and share their background stories of the 7 regalia on display and dance origins, plus more. There will be an opportunity to chat with Patrick and Marrisa at the end of the talk & tour.
Talk starts at 2 pm on Saturday, November 28, 2020. Let us know you're coming by booking your attendance below. There is limited availability due to social distancing requirements.
Ohcîwin is a Cree word meaning “The Origin” or telling of a story where something originated.
Powwow! Ohcîwin The Origins features 7 powwow dance styles, with full Regalia and craft work. Curators and creators, Patrick Mitsuing and Marrisa Mitsuing, have gathered the stories, worked with the Artisans, and carefully built the Regalia for this exhibition.
This exhibition is on display at the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery (MAG) until February 27, 2021.
