Keeping House: A Home For Saskatchewan First Nations' Artifacts
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis focuses on the development of a "Keeping House" near Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. Although there is an extensive artifact collection in Saskatchewan, many First Nations' artifacts are spread out throughout the province, Canada, and in other countries. These artifacts are living items, with a story, history and ceremony attached to them and they are in need of repatriation through a process which ensures their safety and preservation. This project will offer environments for the safe-keeping of Saskatchewan First Nations' artifacts, as well as areas for teaching and ceremonies. It will also build on the existing historical strengths of the land on which it sits.
