From ancient mammoth ivory sculpture to modern refitted snow mobiles, the objects in this immersive exhibition revealed the creativity and resourcefulness of Indigenous Peoples in the Arctic.
Developed in collaboration with Arctic communities, the exhibition celebrated the ingenuity and resilience of Arctic Peoples throughout history. It told the powerful story of respectful relationships with icy worlds and how Arctic Peoples have harnessed the weather and climate to thrive.
The dramatic loss of ice and erratic weather caused by climate change are putting unprecedented pressure on Arctic Peoples, testing their adaptive capacities and threatening their way of life.
What happens in the Arctic will affect us all and this exhibition provided a timely reminder of what the world can learn from its people.
Long ago people knew something was going to happen to this earth. How they knew it, I don't know. An Elder mentioned in the 1940s that this climate is going to change. They meant climate change.
– Martha Snowshoe, Teetl'it Gwich'in
