Chief Dan George - Okanagan Heritage Museum

Thursday, Mar 2, 2023 - Sunday, Apr 2, 2023

A travelling exhibit created by MONOVA: Museum and Archives of North Vancouver

Explore the life and legacy of Tsleil-Waututh Chief Dan George.

Longshoreman, actor, musician, lecturer, poet, activist, environmentalist and First Nations leader. Dan George (born Geswanouth Slahoot) is well remembered. Raised on the Burrard Indian Reserve #3, the son of hereditary chief George Sla-holt, he spent much of his life working as a longshoreman and logger. He began his acting career later in life during the 1960s and 70s. Dan George appeared in many television, movie and stage productions in which he worked to promote a better understanding of First Nations people.

Although focused on Dan George, the exhibition also delves into significant events in the First Nations rights movement in BC and Canada.
