Description

The Peacemaker Returns (working title) is a sci-fi retelling of the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) confederation story and features historical figures such as Tekanawita, Jacques Cartier, and a president addicted to Twitter! Created by Mohawk artist Skawennati, the exhibition includes a short, animation-style movie as well as a “museum of the future.” Together they provide young viewers with an Indigenous perspective on First Nations history and the important contributions that Indigenous people can bring to the societies of tomorrow. A guided tour, discussion, educational games and a workshop will enrich students’ knowledge of First Nations culture, while encouraging them to imagine the world they will inhabit and shape as adults.

VOX’s innovative program of youth exhibitions invites contemporary artists to produce works designed for a specific age group. The workshops accompanying these exhibitions are designed and led by visual arts facillitators.
