On view are installation pieces by seven native artists from across Canada and the United States that express the complex connections between community and identity: Mary Longman (Plains Cree), Nora Naranjo-Morse (Tewa), Marianne Nicholson (Kwakwaka'wakw), Shelley Niro (Mohawk), Jolene Rickard (Tuscarora), Mateo Romero (Tewa), and C. Maxx Stevens (Seminole). The installations include a classroom setting, a conceptual "Big House" incorporating traditional and present-day West Coast designs, and a mural reminiscent of cave paintings. This exhibition is organized by the Canadian Museum of Civilization.
