Curated by Lorilee Wastasecoot (BC Arts Council Curatorial Intern).

We Carry Our Ancestors weaves together generations of Indigenous women through cedar basketry. For the first time ever, Legacy Art Galleries will exhibit Nuu-chah-nulth and Salish historical baskets from the collection alongside portraits of weavers including Alice Paul, Liz Happynook, Lena Jumbo and Ellen Jumbo by documentary photographer Ulli Stelzer. Contemporary baskets by Salish artists Angela Marsden and Brenda Crabtree, among others, will also be exhibited. Through new and intensive community research, this exhibition honours the resilience of women who have carried their cultures forward by passing down the art of cedar basketry to future generations.
