Abstract

Abstract:

This article examines the foundations of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights's approach and content relating to Indigenous childhoods and to Indigenous children's rights. Through an examination of existing content, I position these practices at the forefront of new scholarly literature on children and Indigenous rights. Our exhibits engage with childhood on both conceptual and experiential levels within broader Indigenous understandings about the rights of people and communities. In doing so, our exhibits connect with the public in a new way that moves intersectionality beyond only the realm of academia and works towards building reconciliation.
