“Voices of Chief’s Point”

Voices of Chief's point education program icon

Treat your class to a unique opportunity to join guest curator Dr. Bimadoshka Pucan as she shares the knowledge of her ancestors through Voices of Chief’s Point, now on display at the BCM&CC for a limited time. Students will learn about the role of the oral tradition in Anishnaabe culture as they hear newly digitized recordings from 1938 of Chief’s Point residents Robert and Eliza Thompson sharing Anishnaabeg stories and songs. They will also hear interpretations of these recordings from Dr. Pucan, make a creation based on cultural artifacts on display to take home, and record some of their own stories.
