stem ‘al’u ‘u’ ni xe’xe What is Sacred? School Program

Grade 5-7

The program is based on our current feature exhibit stem ‘al’u ‘u’ ni xe’xe What is Sacred?, curated by Eliot White-Hill, Kwulasultun (Snuneymuxw). The exhibit includes historical and contemporary examples of Coast Salish art with a focus on Snuneymuxw and cultures on the mid-island, and is a celebration of the richness and vitality of Coast Salish art.

Students will explore the past, present, and future of Coast Salish art through an interactive guided tour of the feature exhibit. Engaging activities will help your students learn about Coast Salish art – which is distinct among Northwest coast art – and discuss various art forms including stone sculpture, cedar weaving, wool weaving, and carving.

Bookings are available now for June 5-28, and fall 2023.
