Aboriginal UnHistory Month exhibit
On display until August 30, 2017
The fifth annual Aboriginal (Un) History Month exhibit is now on display at UBC Library’s Irving K. Barber Learning Centre. This exhibit asks the question “Whose 150?” and explores the rich Indigenous history and culture in Canada. The eight cases include video, maps, video animated graphics, stories and histories — aimed at encouraging conversation and learning about the broader context of Canada’s 150.
