It’s part storytelling, part Indigenous history — and it has travelled thousands of kilometres to arrive back where it all started.

The Delta Days Exhibit is on display at the University of Saskatchewan’s Gordon Oakes Red Bear Student Centre for the rest of the week. The exhibit features canoes, video screens, artwork, crafts and photos contributed by community members.

The display aims to engage and educate people about the importance and challenges faced by deltas and delta communities and how to preserve them.   Dozens of delta residents participated in the project by providing their stories of what life in their communities is like.

Three inland deltas are represented including Slave Lake, Peace-Athabasca and the Saskatchewan River Delta. Cumberland House was one of five communities across Western Canada that were visited in the preparation of the exhibit.

Charlebois Community School and the Opaskwayak Cree Nation are two of the 10 partners and collaborators in this project.

The display has been on tour this year, travelling more than 4,500 kilometres with stops in dozens of communities.

The project was created as part of the Delta Dialogue Network put together by a University of Saskatchewan team.
