Long before settlers began building residential schools, indigenous communities passed knowledge down from generation to generation.

From September 9 to 27, the UBC Learning Exchange invites you to “Generations”, a thought-provoking multimedia exhibit. Based on hearings generated during Chief Justice Berger’s historic work on pipelines and Aboriginal land claims during the 1970’s, the exhibit animates how three generations of Dene and Inuvialuit leaders from the Northwest Territories learned from their elders. An opening reception will be held on September 19, 5:00 to 7:00.

Location: UBC Learning Exchange, 612 Main Street

Exhibition: September 9-27

Exhibit hours:

  • Mon-Thu 9am-12pm & 1pm-5pm
  • Fri 1pm-5pm
