This reception will feature a hoop dance performance as well as information about the U of L Art Gallery’s ongoing Nicholas de Grandmaison Oral History Project. Through this project we are currently collecting stories from First Nations people about their relatives portrayed in de Grandmaison’s work. The art gallery hopes to bring past and present generations together by discovering the story behind the subjects in the portraits. The hoop dance performance will show that First Nations’ cultures are still as proud and strong as they were when de Grandmaison first captured his visual documentation of the subjects.
