Sidney Museum will be hosting the Chief Dan George: Actor and Activist exhibit, which explores the life and legacy of Tsleil-Waututh Chief Dan George (1899- 1981) and his influence as an Indigenous rights advocate and his career as an actor. The exhibition was developed by the North Vancouver Museum in close collaboration with the George family and has spent the last year at U’mista Cultural Centre in Alert Bay. Longshoreman, actor, musician, lecturer, poet, activist, environmentalist and First Nations leader; Dan George (born Geswanouth Slahoot) is remembered for many things. Raised on the Burrard Indian Reserve #3, the son of hereditary chief George Sla-holt, Dan George spent much of his life working as a longshoreman and logger and did not start his acting career until in his 60s. During the 1960s and 70s, he appeared in many television, movie and stage productions in which he worked to promote a better understanding of Indigenous people and challenged their common portrayal on screen. Although focused on Dan George, this exhibition will also delve into significant events and individuals in the Indigenous rights movement in BC and Canada. This exhibit is funded in part by the Department of Canadian Heritage Museums Assistance Program and was honoured by the District of North Vancouver with a Heritage Advocacy Award for Indigenous program collaboration.
