First Nations

Exhibition - Lower Saxony State Museum Hannover

The exhibition includes religious artifacts and everyday objects, some thousands of years old, that reflect the lives of the Inuit, Métis and the peoples known as the “First Nations”. The significance of time, the seasons and daily rhythms conjures up a sense of the First Peoples’ close ties to nature. Visitors experience this harmony through atmospheric light and sound installations, which create a dramatic mise-en-scène. The exhibits are presented within the context of a visitor-friendly narrative structure and not as isolated objects seen from an academic perspective.
