Museum of Civilization


For five years, the Miktouch family has gathered at a multinational forestry company’s front gate to protest the  company’s activities on the ancestral lands of the Malamek nation. This time, however, the multinational is not the only one being accused of wrongdoing. Disagreements between generations and conflicting values come to light, and disturbing truths are admitted. Written by Maliseet author Dave Jenniss, this play will leave no one indifferent. The public reading of Wulustek will showcase the talent of several Aboriginal actors from Quebec.Audience advisory: This play deals with a sensitive subject and contains coarse language. Audience discretion is advised.

The Museum archives are full of photographs that document the history of Aboriginal Peoples. Using digital photo-imaging, superimpose a photo of yourself onto one of these archival Images to create a bridge between the past and present,between Indigenous culture and your own.
