Pathways: Following traces of Indigenous routes across Ontario

Exhibition banner 

Land and water routes across what is now Ontario reveal layers of Indigenous knowledge, resistance and presence that connect from time immemorial to the present and future.

This exhibit features works by contemporary Indigenous artists as well as historical materials from the collections of the Toronto Public Library and Library and Archives Canada.

You can visit the exhibition from August 18 to October 28, 2018, at the TD Gallery in the Toronto Reference Library, 789 Yonge Street.
