On April 20, 2018, the Canadian Museum of History hosted an Alumni Day to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Aboriginal Training Program in Museum Practices. Graduates of the program gathered to celebrate and to take a collective look at innovative ways of developing cultural-heritage opportunities for Indigenous peoples across Canada.
Moderated by Jameson Brant, ATPMP Coordinator, A Closer Look at Museum Training for Indigenous People in Canada features perspectives from former alumni Karyne Holmes (Métis), Archivist; Curtis Lazore (Mohawk), Environmental Assessment Officer; and Chepximiya Siyam’ Chief Janice George (Squamish).
The Aboriginal Training Program in Museum Practices has been generously supported by the RBC Emerging Artists Project for the past four years.
