Stranger In Your Homeland

This exhibit explores traditional ties between Aboriginals and the land, and the dilemma that some Aboriginals now feel strange in their own home land. To mitigate alienation, many things help awaken Aboriginal connections to this place and its ancestors – archaeology, the study of history, the insights and instructions of elders. The exhibit also reveals the unconscious streaming of ancestral ways in the modern built form of Toronto.
