Walter Bonaise with NAIT Filming Crew

First Nation Cree Elder, Walter Bonaise, visited
the museum today with a film crew from NAIT
in Edmonton. They are filming Walter telling stories from the past. The Bonaise Family archival materials and museum artifacts will help to illustrate some of the stories. These videos will aid the NAIT instructors to relate to the growing numbers of aboriginal students at their campus.

As well Walter told the story of the tomahawk in the First Nations culture and the significance it has as a symbol in the World's Largest Tomahawk in Tomahawk Park.
