The Days of Augusta is an exhibition that brings together photographs, audio and text that shares the story of Augusta, a Soda Creek Elder who died in 1978. Christened “Mary Augusta Tappage,” Augusta was born on February 11, 1888 in Soda Creek, BC. She was the daughter of Christopher [Alex] Tappage, a Shuswap Chief, and Mary Ann Longshem, a Mètis woman. Widowed as a young woman, Augusta raised her own children, taught herself midwifery skills and helped raise many other children in the area. This exhibit includes Keziere’s recordings of Augusta sharing stories, playing the harmonica and singing cowboy songs, as well as a selection of photographs that have never been seen publicly.
