Stop on by the Peace River Museum, Archives and Mackenzie Centre to experience the travelling exhibit from the Canadian Language Museum, “Beyond Words: Dictionaries and Indigenous Languages.” In their words, this exhibit “highlights the complex relationship between Indigenous languages and dictionaries over several centuries, from word lists and dictionaries developed for exploration, colonization, conversion and assimilation purposes, to online language materials being developed by Indigenous communities to transmit the elders’ language knowledge to today’s youth.”
Admission to the museum and this exhibit is by donation.
