riverpeoplenationstatepeople is a set of displays, revisions, questions and responses for attaching Kamloops' cultural history to an ongoing process of self-evaluation.
Starting with stories of the first people of this region told through the voices of Secwépemc Museum & Heritage Park and Stk'emlupsemc te Secwépemc Nation and Secwépemc guest curator Tania Willard, a record of Secwépemc experience and cultural production has been placed at the centre of KMA's permanent exhibition of regional history. This display is now being complemented by a set of features developed with the Kamloops Chinese Freemason's Association and the Kamloops Chinese Cultural Association chronicling Chinese contributions to Kamloops' cultural life including the construction of the C.P.R..
riverpeoplenationstatepeople signals a widened frame of reference for understanding the current of our region's histories by exploring the tributaries that feed it. Unfolding incrementally, imperfectly and unendingly, it is a sustained effort to use the unique space and tools of the Museum as a sounding board for voices from Kamloops' oldest and newest cultural communities.
