October – November 2021. The Museum at Campbell River hosted the first stop for the traveling exhibit Sacred Journey.
The Sacred Journey Exhibit immerses the audience into the world of Indigenous canoe culture of the Pacific Northwest Coast. Almost lost, the ocean-going canoe has seen a remarkable resurgence over the last three decades. Today, the coast-wide tribal canoe journeys are a catalyst in Indigenous cultural revitalization and means for community healing and youth empowerment. Told by leaders and participants of today’s canoe resurgence, for the first time, the Sacred Journey Exhibit unveils this amazing story through the Indigenous framework of Nuyum (stories) expressed through metaphoric art, immersive audio, and extensive video displays, and interactive experiences.
Immerse yourself into the ancient canoe culture, witness the many life-changing experiences that youth have gained along the Pacific Northwest Coast through the transformative power of the ocean-going canoe.
