We, the Cree people of Northern Quebec, identify ourselves as the Eeyou of Eeyou Istchee, The People of the Land. Through themes related to ‘walking,’ this exhibition celebrates teachings, values and the rich cultural history passed down from our ancestors.
This exhibition follows the evolution of travelling through our eyes, allowing visitors to experience our stories, arts, and traditional technologies, sharing in our culture. Beginning with childhood Rites of Passage, we share the importance of walking and making our first footprints on Mother Earth. In walking for ceremony and journeys, we respect the many teachings of our Elders that are passed from generation to generation. An expression of Miyupimaatisiiwin (living life well), this exhibition encourages healthy living and inter-connectedness with the land that sustains us all.
Footprints – A Walk Through Generations was produced by the Aanischaaukamikw Cree Cultural Institute in collaboration with the Chisasibi Heritage & Cultural Centre, with funding from Canadian Heritage.
