Indigenous interpreters share personal and family experiences at this immersive experience in Fort Edmonton Park. Artwork, documents, and oral history recordings explore local lives before and after contact with Europeans. An artist residency for indigenous performers resulted in original music for the experience. Project leaders consulted with 50 elders, historians, and community members when developing this first-in-Canada experience.
Edmonton received the Thea Award for Outstanding Achievement - Heritage Center and the Urban Land Institute Americas Award for Excellence for this project.
