Renowned architect Douglas Cardinal envisions Poundmaker museum
from Saskatoon StarPhoenix
Residents of a First Nation near Battleford want their band's namesake exonerated once and for all. To that end, they've enlisted the support of renowned Blackfoot architect Douglas Cardinal who sat in a circle with elders recently, hearing stories about the place where a museum he'll design will one day stand. Poundmaker's descendants are working to set the historical record straight about their chief, who they say was wrongfully convicted of treason in relation to the 1885 Metis resistance.
