"When we teach our weaving, we honour our ancestors and let people know that we are here today, not just surviving but thriving. We went into hiding for so many years, and now it is time to share and to educate."—CHEPX̱IMIYA SIYAM’ Chief Janice George, Guest Curator

Weaving the Future explores the important role of mentorship, and how sharing traditional knowledge can build a sense of identity and promote healing. This exhibition features three established weavers—Debra Sparrow (Musqueam), Angela George (Tsleil-Waututh) and Janice George (Squamish), partnered with their students: Aleen Sparrow, Deanna George, and Anita Tetreau.
