Indigenous Material in Saskatchewan Museums Survey

MAS is asking all of our Institutional Members to please complete this survey. This survey is intended to help us gauge the kind of resources and supports that our members need to meet the Collections Management Standard # 24 (pg. 53 of Standards for Saskatchewan Museums, 2022), which states that “the museum maintains an inventory of all Indigenous artefacts in the collection and makes it available to the MAS office and Indigenous communities upon request.”

MAS is officially requesting that members share with us this inventory of all Indigenous material in their collections. This is not limited to historical artefacts but may also include contemporary works, artworks, archaeological, and archival materials, including photographs and audio/video records (oral histories). Knowing what members have in their collections will ultimately help us develop resources to facilitate reconciliation efforts between museums and Indigenous communities relating to collections stewardship.

The survey can be completed online here. 

If you have any questions or concerns about completing this survey, please reach out to the Museums Advisor by e-mail ([email protected]) or by phone (306.780.9266) between the hours of 8am – 4pm, Mondays to Fridays.
