    The Treaty No. 6 Medal that was first presented to Chief Red Pheasant (Pihew Ka-mihkosit) on August 28,1876 at Fort Carlton has returned home to the Red Pheasant Cree Nation in an official Repatriation Ceremony on July 4, 2019. The Treaty No. 6 Medal was repatriated by the Manitoba Museum. The Medal was acquired by the Museum in 1994 as part of the donation of over 25,000 artifacts in the Hudson’s Bay Company Museum Collection.

    “The Manitoba Museum is delighted to see the Treaty No. 6 Medal return home. We acknowledge that repatriation is a vital aspect in the journey towards reconciliation,” Seema Hollenberg, Manitoba Museum’s director of research, collections and exhibitions, said in a statement.

    “It is our sincerest hope that reuniting the medal with the community will reconnect Red Pheasant people with their history.”

    The medal is set to be displayed for the public at the Saskatchewan Indigenous Cultural Centre in Saskatoon starting July 8.

    Hundreds of train enthusiasts turned up at Ingenium: Canada Science and Technology Museum in Ottawa. An estimated 600 spectators lined the tracks leading to the museum's new conservation centre, which will house some 85,000 artifacts from the very small to the very large — some of the largest being the museum's collection of eight locomotives and nine rail cars.

    The train exhibit is expected to officially open in the spring of 2020, but there will be more opportunities to view the collection before then.

    Touching a toad gives warts.
    More earwax is produced when stressed.
    Eating cheese at the end of a meal prevents cavities.

    Musée minéralogique et minier in Thetford Mines QC will have the exhibit Vrai ou Faux, sous la loupe de la science (True or False, under the microscope of science) a production of Sherbrooke Museum of Nature and Science until October 6, 2019.
    The exhibit allows visitors to exercise their critical sense by disentangling the true from the false while stimulating their scientific curiosity.The claims are divided into five categories (animals, nature, health, science and technology) and are arranged in the style of a big game.

    Are you skeptical?


    As part of the exhibition, Musée minéralogique et minier has invited the lecturer Joel Leblanc from Zapiens – Communication scientifique to present on September  10, 2019. The talk will address cognitive biases that mix true and false, especially in the field of scientific knowledge.

    Earlier this summer Edmonton’s TELUS World of Science opened the doors to its newest permanent exhibit. 

    The Nature Exchange gallery encourages visitors to explore nature and the outdoors, to find things like bark or rock and then take it into the science centre to share information and make trades for other cool natural artifacts.

    Visitors become natural history researchers as they catalogue, interpret, analyze, interact and get hands-on with unique aspects of the gallery.

    The idea for the Nature Exchange originated at Science North in Sudbury, Ontario.
