Curatorial Assistant Mackenzie Birdgenaw

You may recognize Mackenzie Birdgenaw, this is his second summer with us as a Curatorial Assistant.  He is one of two students we have hired for the summer.  

“I am a full time student at Carleton University pursuing my undergraduate degree in Canadian Studies. I am also a graduate of the Applied Museum Studies program at Algonquin College. Ultimately, I hope to use my education to assist smaller Indigenous museums in organizing and adequately meeting the needs of their unique ethnographic collections.

My work at the Goulbourn Museum can range from cleaning the shelving units, to tidying up identification tags, or furthering my work with the MINISIS Database which allows the public digital access to the Museum’s collection. I look forward to helping further the care of Goulbourn’s collection and interacting with the community through events such as Doors Open Ottawa and Father’s Day Flashback.”
