Fall Lecture Series - One Small Voice

Join Petal Furness. Details to follow.

Petal Furness is the Manager at Grey Roots Museum & Archives, a position she has held since October 2014. Prior to managing, she led the Heritage Interpretation team for ten years developing in-house exhibits, events and programs. Born and raised on the West Coast, Petal focused on Native Studies and Psychology, interrupted by summers working at Fort Langley National Historic Site. Her love for history and storytelling became her career and Petal’s first full-time job was an historic site interpreter. She relocated to Parks Canada’s regional office in Calgary to take the position of Heritage Interpretation Specialist and Aboriginal Liaison. Petal was able to travel all across Canada to work with Indigenous groups to help them tell their stories – primarily liaising with the Haida and the Siksika (Blackfoot) First Nations. Her greatest joy is working with Elders and youth.

This presentation is part of our Fall Lecture Series taking place on Tuesday afternoons in November in our Theatre. Talks take place at 1:00 p.m. and are repeated at 2:30 p.m. Complimentary refreshments following each talk. Free with admission. Members free as always.
