Join the Minden  Hills Cultural Centre and Haliburton County Public Library to celebrate  International Museum Day for a special screening of "Totem: The Return  of the G'psgolox Pole" (2003) at the Cultural  Centre at 5:00 PM on Thursday, May 16, 2024. Admission is free, and all  ages are welcome. The documentary is provided courtesy of the National  Film Board (NFB). “Totem: The Return of the G'psgolox Pole” is a  gripping documentary that chronicles the heartfelt  journey of the Haisla people of British Columbia to reclaim their  sacred totem pole, which was taken from their community decades earlier.  The people of the Haisla Nation embarked on a complex and emotional  mission to repatriate the totem pole from a museum  in Sweden back to their ancestral homeland. Join us to reflect on  museum practices, once commonplace over the past few decades, which are  now in need of revision.
