Exhibit Launch at the Museum: Gifts of the Ancestors

November 16 5:00 to 7:00 pm

A brand new exhibit is coming together at the Rossland Museum!

Our new permanent exhibit "Gifts of the Ancestors: Crafts & Knowledge of the Sinixt Way" will formally open Thursday, November 16th as part of the expansion and redevelopment of Sinixt content at the Museum. Incorporating stories, crafts, and ancestral baskets entrusted to our care by Sinixt Elders, Matriarchs, and knowledge-keepers, this new exhibit represents another step towards our goal of decolonizing the Museum and supporting Sinixt cultural resurgence.

Join us for a Tobacco Offering Ceremony, a Blessing of the new exhibit, a showing of the short film Learning mxiɬp, and time to mix and mingle while taking in the new display. This event will be open by donation (towards the Autonomous Sinixt), with snacks and refreshments provided.

For more info, check out our website or get in touch with Skylar at or 250-362-7722.

The Museum is open year-round!
Tuesdays through Sundays from 10am to 6pm.
