The First Nations on the West Coast of Canada: the Exhibition Ts’uu – Cedar. Of Trees and People is open
Until March 17, 2024, Gallery 201, third floor, admission free
Canada is the third-most forested country in the world by area: a habitat for plants, animals, and humans for thousands of years. But what happens when this highly developed ecosystem is thrown off balance? The relationship between people and the environment based on the example of the cedar is the subject of the temporary exhibition Ts’uu – Cedar. Of Trees and People in the Humboldt Forum, which has been developed in cooperation with the Haida Gwaii Museum at Kay Llnagaay in British Columbia, Canada. Eight chapters examine the relationships between coastal rainforests, First Nations, and Euro-Canadians, the impact of colonization on the habitat of the Indigenous peoples and their resurgence.
