This exhibit offers guests and visitors the opportunity to experience breathtaking places through a unique lens bringing a sense of belonging to Indigenous peoples. The exhibition features environmental portraiture of Nation members on the territories of the Skwxwú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish Nation), L’ilwat7úl (Lil‘wat Nation), and their shared territories in Whistler.

In addition, there will be pop-up booths showcasing a variety of Indigenous-owned businesses, providing an excellent opportunity to explore and support local Indigenous entrepreneurship during the exhibition.

“As a research project, the exhibit invites audiences to reshape their understanding of land. It emphasizes that the land does not belong to us; we belong to the land. It also encourages us to reflect on our stewardship of the land.”
– Mixalhítsa7 Alison Pascal (Lil’wat Nation), SLCC Curator of the UNCEDED exhibit.

Set in breathtaking Sea to Sky locations from K’emk’emeláy (Vancouver) to Ts’zil (Mount Currie) mountain, the UNCEDED photography exhibit asks the guest to look at the world through a different lens. Marrying regalia, elders, chieftainship with the modern world around us, reshaping how we view our presence here, bringing a sense of belonging to both the viewer and the people celebrated in the exhibit.
