Treaty 11 Document Exhibit extended at Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre

Yellowknife — November 1, 2021

The Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre (PWNHC) re-opened on October 30 and is announcing the extension of the Treaty 11 Document Exhibit until November 21, 2021.

The document, which is in booklet form, has been on display at the PWNHC since September, with a page turned every week to provide the public with the opportunity to see each signatory page.

Due to the recent COVID-19 outbreak in Yellowknife, Behchokǫ̀, Ndilǫ, and Dettah, the PWNHC was temporarily closed to the public, pausing the weekly page turning of the document.

With the museum’s reopening, the exhibit has resumed with the remaining pages displayed in the following order:

  • November 1 to 7: Arctic Red River (Tsiigehtchic) and Fort McPherson page
  • November 8 to 14: Fort Liard and Fort Rae (Behchokǫ̀) page
  • November 15 to 21: title page

You can view the Treaty 11 Document Exhibit from Tuesday to Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
