Sharing Stories: The Effects of Colonization 

Do you know who the Williams Treaties
First Nations People are? Was Christianity being introduced in historic Newmarket as part of assimilation tactics? How well do
you know the Indian Act? What are the Four Sacred Medicines? 

The Elman W. Campbell Museum cares for a small number of Indigenous artifacts in the collection. Staff have consulted with the Elders of the Chippewas of Georgina Island on the repatriation of these objects, and historic experiences and stories to represent in displays. 

The Indigenous artifacts from the Elman W. Campbell Museum collection will be on loan at the Town of Newmarket from June to August 2024. The collection is made up of significant cultural symbols. Through primary and secondary objects discover some traditional practices, handicrafts, celebrations, and language that were taken away due to colonization.
