Spirit Bear and Children Make History Exhibit

The Spirit Bear and Children Make History exhibit is currently showing at The Exploration Place Museum & Science Centre in Prince George, BC! 


Based on true stories, the Spirit Bear and Children Make History exhibit shows how children of all diversities stand with First Nations to achieve what Elder Elmer Courchene called “loving justice” in First Nations children’s services. This multimedia exhibit features interactive puppets and sets from Spirit Bear’s four stop-motion animated films by award-winning Indigenous Studio Spotted Fawn Productions, and includes interactive elements to further engage children. The exhibit also showcases archival material from a landmark human rights case for First Nations children, Jordan’s Principle, Shannen’s Dream, and important lessons from history. 


The Spirit Bear and Children Make History exhibit is a collaboration between Lheidli T’enneh First Nation, the Caring Society, Carrier Sekani Family Services, and The Exploration Place.


The exhibit will run from June 7 until September 30, 2024.
