Opening Reception for Hiding in Plain Sight: Discovering the Métis Nation in the Archival Records of Library and Archives Canada
Explore some of the rich history of the Métis Nation by visiting Hiding in Plain Sight: Discovering the Métis Nation in the Archival Records of Library and Archives Canada. The travelling exhibition is on display at the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery from December 15, 2018 to March 10, 2019.
Join us for our exhibit opening celebration! An afternoon of exploring Métis Culture, with Special Guest Marilyn Dumont, Metis Poet, and musical performances by Brianna Lizotte, Metis Fiddler.

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION:
Library and Archives Canada has a wide variety of archival documents pertaining to the Métis Nation, including textual records, photographs, artwork, maps, stamps and sound recordings. This exhibition explores the portrayal of Métis Citizens—some of whom are “hiding in plain sight”—in art and photographic collections and the accompanying descriptions, and aims to foster a better understanding of the history and the culture of the Métis Nation.

Library and Archives Canada would like to recognize the knowledge and expertise provided by the Métis National Council and the Manitoba Metis Federation in the creation of this exhibition.
