A virtual companion exhibit celebrating Indigenous northerners and their contribution to the RCMP in the Northwest Territories. This exhibit is presented for the first time in all 11 official languages.
“We took care of Them” celebrates and honors the contributions of Indigenous people in the NWT to policing in the north. Come to hear stories about Special Constables, told by community members for this exhibit. Learn more about the role that NWT communities played in helping the RCMP through rare video, photographs and interesting objects.
This exhibit was created in partnership with the Department of Justice and RCMP “G” Division to celebrate Canada 150.
This exhibition grew out of an online project by the Textile Museum of Canada. The Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre was invited to choose textile-related objects from our collection and submit their stories to Narrative Threads – Crafting the Canadian Quilt.
This is the story of the Wıìlıìdeh Yellowknives Dene First Nation and their traditional territory. The exhibition is a collaboration with YKDFN elders and cultural advisors to showcase their history, language and culture through artifacts, clothing, oral history and photographs.
Immerse yourself in our 10 landscape dioramas that showcase the strong connection northerners have with animals and the land. To create these dioramas, we worked closely with wildlife experts, elders, and community advisors from across the NWT.
From the late 1800s to the 1950s, mooseskin boats were built by the Shutagot’ine (Mountain Dene) to carry large amounts of cargo along dangerous mountain rivers. This boat was made in 1981 in partnership with the National Film Board and the Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre. Come and learn about the largest artifact on permanent display.
