A chance to celebrate and honour indigenous culture as told by an indigenous voice is now available for residents in Okotoks and surrounding communities. 

Piikanikoan - Living Under a Blackfoot Sky - A Modern Winter Count is the latest exhibit at the Okotoks Museum and Archives and represents an indigenous mans story told the way he wanted to tell it.

The travelling exhibit is curated by Ira Provost and created by Galt Museum & Archives in Lethbridge.

An important showcase of culture for those living in the area says Okotoks Museum and Archives specialist Kathy Coutts.

"It really is important that indigenous history is told by the indigenous people and not filtered or interpreted by non-indigenous curators like myself. That's the beauty of this exhibit is that history is shared in the words and the voices of Ira Provost."

The display will be available for viewing until Friday, September 30 which coincides with the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. 

"He does it through music and he does it through panels and we're very, very grateful to be able to share his story with the community"

The museum is located at 49 North Railway Street and is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
