Vernon Museum and Archives presents "How Turtle Set the Animals"

MAV’s large foyer display case features original costumes and set-pieces from Sen’Klip Native Theatre Company’s production of How Turtle Set the Animals Free. The costumes were designed by syilx artist and knowledge keeper, Barbara Marchand, and made by members of Sen’Klip Theatre using traditional syilx methods.

Sen’klip Native Theatre Company led the way in Indigenous theatre in Western Canada from 1988 to 2001. MAV is entering into a partnership with the company to display some of the costumes, masks, set pieces and backdrops used in their touring theatre productions.

Costumes, masks, and set-pieces representing traditional syilx captikʷł will be on rotating display through 2022 and 2023.

Not the Indian Princess You Expected

Vernon Museum & Archives 3009 32nd Avenue, Vernon, British Columbia

Not The Indian Princess You Expected exhibits parts of interdisciplinary artist, Mariel Belanger’s private collection of original artwork and display items.

Belanger is a syilx interdisciplinary performance artist who has devised a life “of the land” with self-directed digital performance art as a way to revise history. A 2022 SSHRC doctoral scholarship recipient, Belanger’s lived experience impacts her studies as a student at Queen’s University. Following in her syilx grandmother’s footprints, Belanger weaves community-driven, land-based artistic knowledge and practice into projects and stories of caring for the land and maintaining matrilineal relationships.

The Gallery exhibit will shift and change with the seasons throughout 2022 and 2023.
