Museum exhibit on developers of Canadian Aboriginal Syllabics

According to “Provincial archives honours missionaries who devised written language for First Nations” on the Edmonton Journal site, the Provincial Archives of Alberta will have an exhibit on the people who developed and spread Canadian Aboriginal syllabics, one of the topics in yesterday’s post.

According to Wikipedia, James Evans, the creator of the syllabics, based the writing system on Devanagari (Wiki) and Pitman shorthand.

The exhibit will be on display from June 23 to September 17.

The Provincial Archives of Alberta website does not yet mention this exhibit.
