A collection of 30 black and white photographs of Elders and community leaders from Treaty 8 territory by Tryna Gower and Theresa Gladue.
It’s so critical that we keep our connection with the older generation. As our Native elders leave their life behind, they take with them generations of traditional teaching and knowledge. A person is much more than just their photo. As you move through the exhibit, I think you’ll come to understand just what I mean by that.
These are people that have had hard lives, difficult lives, but they turned their story around to make it better–and that’s where the wisdom in People of Wisdom, Words of Wisdom (POW WOW) comes from.
Justine Bouchard, Caily Oldershaw and Payge Fortier
