Genocide Against the Tutsi in Rwanda Pop-up Museum

The pop-up museum has been extended out to November 15!

Hosted by PCFR at the Indianapolis Interchurch Center, the museum is free and open to the public Monday through Friday, 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Schedule your full experience: guided tour with Kizito Kalima, hearing his powerful story of survival and forgiveness, and participate in a Q&A – Kizito is an open book about his experiences and is dedicated to spreading awareness of genocide and its aftermath. These can be scheduled at your convenience; groups of 10 or more preferred. Evenings and weekends outside of normal business hours can be accommodated. All ages are welcome, but we recommend ages 10 and up.

The museum consists of three exhibits:

  • Rwandan/East African Culture

This exhibit immerses the viewer in the everyday life of rural Rwandans. Handmade baskets, figurines, and toys; as well as examples of diet, mealtime traditions, and what consisitutes wealth.

  • 1994 Genocide Against the Tutsi

Divisiveness inflicted by colonization is demonstrated starting with the notorious ID cards and racial/ethnic identification methods. The precursors and events leading to genocide are detailed and outlined, as is the aftermath.

  • Genocides and Peace Movements Around the World

This is where critical thinking comes into play: what can you, as an individual, do to help people who have survived genocide and help prevent it from happening again?
