Remai Modern is sited on the banks of the South Saskatchewan River, a powerful waterway that has been used by Indigenous peoples for thousands of years. We welcome you to Treaty 6 Territory and the homeland of the Métis. Treaty 6 was made between the Crown in right of Canada and Indigenous leaders. The Treaty outlines shared responsibilities for peoples living on these lands, for the benefit of all.
Remai Modern acknowledges the contributions of Nêhiyawak, Dakota and Round Prairie Métis peoples in establishing Saskatoon and we also acknowledge the Nēhîthâwâk, Nèhinawak, Denesųłiné, Nahkawē, Nakota and Lakota peoples in our province. We pay our respects to the ancestors and reaffirm our relationship with one another.
One of Remai Modern’s guiding principles is to be respectful to Indigenous peoples across Turtle Island, with the aim to be a leading centre for contemporary Indigenous art and discourse.
We believe by embedding Indigeneity into programs and exhibitions, the institution is enabling the calls to action for museums to provide a conduit for truth, and encouraging diversity of roles by meeting the call to provide equitable employment opportunities.
We are working to amplify Indigenous voice in the organization and strengthen our commitment to the Indigenous art community, through our hiring practices, event offerings, artistic programming, community outreach and much more. We are committing to ensuring our people (including board, staff and volunteers) reflect the diversity of our region.
