The Indigenous Studies Program works to preserve the material culture of Saskatchewan with the goal of enhancing and celebrating knowledge about lifeways and worldviews through time. The Ethnology section actively engages in the preservation of Saskatchewan Indigenous objects including clothing and tools from the post contact period.
The repatriation and stewardship of Saskatchewan Indigenous sacred objects held in the Ethnology Reserve Collection of the museum is a recent and important addition to the program with the implementation of a new policy in January 2011.
If you have inquiries regarding objects under the stewardship of the Museum, please contact
