For thousands of years the traditional ocean-going canoe was the main means of transportation in the Pacific Northwest.
It was a way of life - essential for sustenance, social encounters, and ceremonial customs.  Nearly lost, as a result of suppression and technological changes, coastal First Nation’s revival of traditional canoe journeys has become a cornerstone in the resurgence of aboriginal culture.
Today, Tribal Journeys are hosted yearly, attracting as many as 10,000 visitors and participants. We have been following these events since 2010 and are excited to be part of Sacred Journey, a project aimed at documenting the historical significance, traditional knowledge, and future impact of these journeys. 
In collaboration with the Heiltsuk First Nation and initiator of Tribal Journeys, Frank Brown, we developed and realized a traveling exhibit to portray how the revival of the canoe has strengthened cultural identity and contributed to youth empowerment. The 2000 sqft exhibit shares ideas and stories, inspiring leadership, innovation, and opportunities for economic development. 
As a fully immersive experience, Sacred Journey incorporates the interpretation of ceremonial canoe, enriched with video projections, 21 touchless interactive audio-visual displays, and original Heiltsuk art.

We created the promotional materials and the website and are assisting the Heiltsuk First Nation in travelling and maintaining the exhibit on its tour to the canoe nations in the Pacific Northwest and across Canada over the course of the next 6 years.
