We Are Here Exhibition
We Are Here: The Story of Aboriginal People in Peel, a resident exhibition at PAMA, captures the stories of aboriginal people living in Peel. Aboriginal people have lived in Peel for generations and through personal stories, music and art, we can learn many important lessons from their culture. In this exhibition, Aboriginal people tell their own stories in their own words. Come into the lodge and listen.
