Indigenous Veterans of Treaty 3

The Museum, in partnership with Kayleigh Speirs of Kay-Nah-Chi-Wah-Nung and Rainy River First Nations, and Glenn Jourdain of Couchiching First Nation, invite you to visit the exhibit, open now until Friday, January 25, 2019.

This exhibit honours our indigenous veterans who fought on battlefields worldwide. Despite having few rights under the Indian Act, these soldiers went to war in unheard-of numbers to do what they could for peace. They were seen as equals by their comrades, and yet still returned home to few benefits and other inequalities.

Fibre Arts Festival!

This is the work of our own local artists who work with textiles - quilting, rughooking, cross-stitch, you name it! - to create beautiful pieces of hand-made art. Deadline to submit is January 15th. More information under Programs & Events.

In our main floor gallery, beginning Friday, February 1st:

Fibre Content

a juried travelling exhibit of textiles selected for their artistry, level of skill and creativity. Very similar to Threadworks, a textile exhibit that we all knew and loved, Fibre Content will delight you. On display until end of March.

'Rainy River Valley: Beginnings'

Please be sure to get your copy of 'Rainy River Valley: Beginnings', featuring the work of photographer, William Hampden Tener, who resided here in the late 1890s and early 1900s. Researched and organized by historian and author, Merv Ahrens, the book is an invaluable collection of images from our past, particularly as it portrays our community at work and play. The book is available at the Museum and Betty's of Fort Frances for $25.

Strategic Plan

With the assistance of Sandra Brunetta, we are gathering the personal histories of our residents. If you would like to help out, the form is below. This should be used as a guide only as each person is different. Once collected, we hope you will leave a copy with the museum. Thank you.
