Inspired by ceremony and living oral traditions, this tour provides insight into the seven sacred teachings that call on each of us to take responsibility for how we live and treat each other. The tour focuses on the Museum's architecture and use of space rather than the exhibits. Visitors will experience singing, storytelling, works of art and amazing views on this astonishing tour. • 204.289.2238 Experiences AUTHENTIC INDIGENOUS INUIT INGENUITY Lead by Museum interpreters, the Manitoba Museum's Inuit People of the North program is an interactive artefact study and gallery tour that provides an understanding of their traditional lifestyles. Participants, through interacting with objects and the presentation, learn about the Inuit as hunters, gatherers and fishers, and their seasonal dependency on migratory game. The gallery tour focuses on the Arctic/Sub-Arctic region, and demonstrates how the limited resources of fur, skin, stone and bone were integral to the Inuit. This program is a perfect addition for those groups who are heading up north to see polar bears or beluga whales in Churchill, Manitoba. • 204.988.0665 CM H R: M ike Pe te rs
