Dibaajimowin: Stories from this Land
February 8 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
Dibaajimowin highlights the Indigenous contributions to the history of this land. Contributions often overlooked in favour of the well established settler narrative. A narrative represented in the familiar set of murals painted by Selwyn Dewdney in 1950.
Yet, our stories do not exist alone – rather they live parallel to each other.
Dibaajimowin invites visitors to recognize how the way they look at things has been shaped. And, offers an opportunity to a look a little closer at the richness and depth of the stories that need to be told.
Anishinaabe curator Emma Rain Smith delivers an exhibit that is comforting, beautiful, airy and warm. It provides visitors with a point of connection to the land, to the stories and to each other.
