Voices of Chief’s Point

Anishinaabe culture is passed down from generation to generation using songs and stories.  In 1938, Robert and Eliza Thompson, residents of Chief’s Point, Saugeen Territory, shared Anishinaabeg songs and stories with Dr. Edwin Seaborn creating audio recordings on wax cylinders. This exhibition captures some of that special tradition as, Guest Curator Dr. Bimadoshka Pucan shares their songs and stories that were rediscovered during her Ph.D. research.  This exhibit was developed in partnership with Museum London, Saugeen First Nation, University of Western Ontario, and funded in part by the Government of Canada.
