Description of Tricia Logan's talk:
Canadian Museum for Human Rights - Shared Territory
The Canadian Museum for Human Rights is emerging as part of Winnipeg’s landscape and skyline. The museum is built upon shared territory that represents the criss-crossing of a number of Aboriginal peoples who have utilized the fork of the Red and Assiniboine rivers to meet for centuries. Winnipeg is also home to the criss-crossing of seemingly countless peoples and cultures. It is a city rich with stories of rights both won and lost. The way Winnipeggers, Manitobans and Canadians assert and live their human rights is often quite remarkable. The land and the community that the museum will share is inherently part of the museum itself. The museum will undoubtedly encompass the unique and diverse aspects of both the territory and the peoples of this territory.
