Voices from the Land, Visions of Life: Beauty Created by the Indigenous Peoples of Canada
This exhibition is composed of the traveling exhibition, “The First Peoples of Canada,” provided by the Canadian Museum of Civilization, and our own collection of prints created by the indigenous peoples of Canada. The traveling exhibition materials at the core of the exhibit introduce the historical and geographical diversity of Canada's indigenous cultures, and the materials collected by Minpaku researchers show art works by the Inuit and other indigenous peoples of the Northwest Coast, including many woodblock prints. The range of artistic expression by Canada's indigenous peoples is demonstrated in the craftsmanship, patterns, colors, and forms of their artifacts and art works, and through this art the unique and fascinating aspects of these cultures are introduced. In addition, the exhibition introduces through videos and photographs the natural environments of the Inuit and the other indigenous peoples of the Northwest Coast, where the creators of these works reside.
