INDIGENOUS INGENUITY: TIMELESS INVENTIONS

Indigenous peoples from North America have long demonstrated a great sense of ingenuity, using nature as inspiration. The world we know today is influenced by their innovations and scientific knowledge. 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 and celebrate the diversity, interconnectedness, and resourceful ways of knowing and being, that Indigenous knowledge and innovations provide in the global community.
