In 1999 Spirit of the Peace Museums produced an exhibit based on the
Diaries of Charles Mair from, Through
The Mackenzie Basin,
a book that accounts the 1899-1900 Treaty and Scrip commissions. The
exhibit took the form of a panel display including archival photographs of
Treaty and Scrip negotiators, signers, commissioners, travels and
lifestyle from the Alberta Provincial Archives, The Glenbow Archives and
the National Archives of Canada.
The Photos were enriched with text from
the Charles Mair Treaty and Scrip commission accounts. The Display was
used as a visual and textual resource for the 1999 Treaty 8 conference,
and has since then becoming a travelling exhibit. The materials within the
display have broadened understanding of the 1899-1900 time
period and given a glimpse into the life of the people involved in the
treaty and scrip commission and negotiations in the Treaty 8 area.
