About the Museum:
Mennonite Heritage Village (Canada) Inc. focuses on commemorating individuals and events in Russian Mennonite history from 1525 to present.

Mennonite Heritage Village also rents its unique facilities to the general public for: weddings/wedding photos, family photos, nature photography, conferences, meetings, concerts, etc. Call for more information.
For the fourth installment of the “Leaving Canada” speaker series, Andrea Klassen, senior curator of Mennonite Heritage Village, will explore the interactions between Mennonite colonists in northern Mexico and their Mexican neighbours as depicted in the immigrant newspaper Die Steinbach Post. Drawing on her study of letters published in the Post from Mennonites in Mexico to their relatives and friends in Canada between 1922 and 1967, Klassen will describe how Mennonite encounters with their neighbours – in the marketplace, in conflicts with thieves and the state, and through informal relationships between individuals – had the effect of creating a cohesive religious and cultural identity and strengthening Mennonites’ self-perception as an ethnic minority living on foreign soil.

September 29 @ 7:00pm - Unpacking the Doctrine of Discovery with Josh Dueck
The Doctrine of Discovery has become a buzzword in the media and in conversations connected to Truth and Reconciliation. This evening’s conversation will unpack this and better equip Settler-Canadians in more thoroughly understanding how historic wrongs (including the church) have created present barriers for Indigenous people. It will challenge us to consider what our next steps are towards meaningful reconciliation.
