The Museum of Anthropology (MOA) at UBC with the Musqueam Indian Band present the remarkable new exhibition The Fabric of Our Land: Salish Weaving, on display from November 19, 2017 to April 15, 2018. Curated by Susan Rowley in collaboration with Salish weavers, this exhibition takes visitors on a journey through the past 200 years of Salish wool weaving. The exhibition will provide a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to view rare early Salish weavings on loan from museums in Europe and the United States, as well as works created by contemporary Salish weavers. Visitors will experience these striking textiles and gain an understanding about the resources required in their creation, and also their spiritual, cultural, and economic significance to local communities.
