BOOZHOO GAKINA AWIIYAG!
COME CELEBRATE THE EVER-EVOLVING WORLD OF INDIGENOUS INGENUITY!
Indigenous peoples from North America have long demonstrated a great sense of ingenuity, using nature as inspiration. The world we know today was in part fashioned by their innovations and approaches to science. Designed around an interactive quest, the exhibition invites visitors to experience the innovative processes that give rise to Indigenous knowledge by:
- OBSERVING nature as a source of inspiration
- LISTENING to bearers of knowledge
- EXPERIMENTING with scientific principles
- SHARING acquired knowledge by passing it on to others
This exhibition presents a clever and novel mix of science and culture intended to stir a sense of pride among First Nation, Inuit and Métis communities.
