"I think it is important to get people to learn from the people who make moccasins,

from the people who wear moccasins,

and from the people moccasins come from."

About the Exhibit

Moccasins Re-vamped: Walking Forward Together was created in partnership between the Lakeshore Grounds Interpretive Centre and the Aboriginal Resource Centre. The exhibit was framed through the words of Guest Curator, Sage Petahtegoose and combined contemporary examples of moccasins made by students and staff at Humber with images of historic moccasins from communities around the Great Lakes Region that had been provided by the Bata Shoe Museum.
