A big hello to all BC Schools, Principals, Teachers, PACs, Event Coordinators, and Students,
Yay! The summer is here!
I would like to thank all those who I was invited Myself and the Mobile Museum to present during this past year at all the public and private BC Schools.
I would also like to thank all the Principals, PACs and everyone else that made 2017-18 school year a very busy one for myself and the BC Mobile Museum Tours.
What an amazing year it was presenting at events during “Cultural days” at Langley Centennial Museum, “Collingwood Days” in Vancouver and to students and staff in over 50 different public and private schools throughout the Lower Mainland including areas as far away as Lytton, Lillooet and Salmon Arm.
I am also looking forward to presenting once again in 2018-19 with tours currently being booked throughout the lower mainland and other BC communities.
There are many dates remaining available but I recommend that you book your event or school presentation date(s) early to ensure your preferred month and time.
Contact me directly at 778-386-3110 or visit the www.Mobilemuseum.ca website for more information, pricing and booking availability.
Tony Hardie/BC History Presenter
“Honoured to be presenting the BC Mobile Museum on the Traditional Territory of the Katzie, Kwantlen, Kwikwetlem, Musqueam, Nlaka’pamux, Qayqayt, Secwepemc, Squamish, Semiahmoo, St’at’mic, Stó:lō, Tsawwassen, & Tsleil-Wauthuth Nations”
The Mobile Museum is excited to add two of these three Lower Columbia River Chinook/Salish First Nation style replica knives created by Steve Alley 2018 to the mobile Museum educational displays and tours.
The middle one with the maple handle is probably the most accurate example with classic Tsagiglalal, “She Who Watches” motif carving still looks out across the Columbia River from the basalt cliff where she was painted by Chinookan People somewhere between the years 1700 and 1840. The other two knives have yew wood handles and traditional agate blades.
Chinookan peoples include several groups of indigenous First Nations people of the Pacific Northwest in the United States who speak the Chinookan languages. In the early 19th century, the Chinookan-speaking peoples resided along the Lower and Middle Columbia River from the river’s gorge downstream to the river’s mouth, and along adjacent portions of the coasts, from Tillamook Bay of present-day Oregon in the south, north to Willapa Bay in southwest Washington. In 1805 the Lewis and Clark Expedition encountered the Chinook tribe on the lower Columbia. The name ″Chinook″ came from a Chehalis word Tsinúk for the inhabitants of and a particular village site on Baker Bay.
