Photographer's Note

With this collage I show my favourite displays of the museum's gallery dedicated to First Peoples art & culture.
The painting shown on the top is Norval Morrisseau's "Migration", from 1973. Norval Morrisseau (1931-2007), also known as Copper Thunderbird, was an Indigenous Canadian artist from the Anishinaabek First Nation. His unique artistic style made him quit famous and he is considered to be the grandfather of contemporary Indigenous art in Canada.
Birch bark canoes were part of an essential transportation system to many First Peoples, and played a crucial role in Canada's economic development. The large Freight Canoe show on the second picture, is a reproduction of of the type used in the 1800s to carry up to 4 tons of weight and paddled by 8 -10 people.
The three pictures on the bottom show examples of the decorated clothes on display in the gallery.
