"How can museums, which have been critiqued as colonial spaces to house the curiosities of disappearing races and to show the superiority of the colonizers, be redeployed as assertions of alternative (aboriginal) worldviews?
I argue that while Sto:lo Nation and Sto:lo individuals have redeployed museum techniquies to serve their own purposes they are still constrained by external and internal factors. Throughout this study I note where the Sto:lo have worked with existing museums, constructed their own interpretive centres, and changed their interpretive centres to differ from and be similar to non-aboriginal-run museums." taken from the provided abstract, p. iii.
