For more than a century, the stories of one man have influenced the image of Indigenous people from North America in German culture. The author Karl May (1842 – 1912) made up the fictional characters of Winnetou, a noble and strong Apache chief, and his blood brother Old Shatterhand, a German settler in the USA. Generations of Germans were fascinated by the adventures of the Native American & his friend, their names probably as well-known in Germany as Sherlock Holmes or Harry Potter in England. However, neither the Winnetou movies, nor the regular Karl-May-Festspiele (Karl May festivals), nor the original books have much to do with reality. Winnetou is a fantasy tale of the “Wild West” written by a man who, when publishing the first Winnetou story, had never travelled to North America. While the movies and books can be criticized for their historical misrepresentation & inauthentic images, Karl May’s stories have helped to create among some Germans a very romantic picture and a fascination for the cultures as well as spirituality of Aboriginal Peoples in North America. Lyndon J. Linklater from Thunderchild First Nation in Saskatchewan had the opportunity to travel to Germany with his wife Terri Bear Linklater (Muskoday First Nation) to teach Germans about his culture as well as the real traditions and history of First Nations in Canada. In this Postillion, he talks about his experiences, the hospitality he felt in Germany, and new friendships he made.

Martin Luther Exhibit

EXHIBITION OVERVIEW
#HereIstand. Martin Luther, the Reformation and its Results
Brought to Saskatchewan by the Saskatchewan German Council.

2017 is the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s 95 Theses that sparked the Protestant Reformation in Western Europe in 1517.

Host your own poster exhibition on the history of the Reformation by renting these posters from SGC!  The poster exhibition “#HereIStand. Martin Luther, the Reformation and its Results” shows the upheavals of the 16th century delivered through 16 modern, attractively designed and informative posters.  Spark interest in this German history that changed Western civilization forever.

Highlighting the most important events in the history of the Reformation, this exhibition also shows how it affects us today.  Using the biography of Martin Luther, father of the Protestant Reformation, as a starting point, the poster exhibit explores the time prior to the Reformation, the dynamics of the Reformation and the outcomes of the Reformation, all in easily accessible language and interesting graphics.

Just as the printing press changed communication in Luther’s time and aided in his popularity, the internet has changed our lives.  After being inspired by the poster exhibition, your audience can visit the accompanying website.  This incredible resource, available in both English and German, boasts interactive 3D models of items from Luther’s time including a 3D tour of an indulgence chest and a writing set as well as access to 3D printing plans: http://www.here-i-stand.com

Cost: rental of this exhibition is up to $80.00 plus shipping. For inquiries please contact the SGC office.

You will find detailed information on exhibit design, display options, dimensions, and more in this information package!
