Today the Anishinaabe of the Three Fires Confederacy are represented by Bkejwanong. We want to state our respect for the ancestral and ongoing authority of Walpole Island First Nation over its Territory.
Guided Tour of Water Protectors with Julie Rae Tucker

Location: Third floor, Cohen Gallery
This event is part of AWE at Night.
This exhibition brings together artists whose works explore the importance of water from Indigenous perspectives. Through their works, the artists explore how water is a sacred, living entity in need of care and protection. They communicate individual and collective relationships to water, highlighting how water flows deep into Indigenous memory, knowledge, and identity. This exhibition pays special tribute to those who take up that important work and honours all Water Protectors across Turtle Island.
