VOX invites you to time travel with your kids! Come discover our third children’s exhibition—Teiakwanahstahsontéhrha’ | We Extend the Rafters, designed specifically for kids aged 5 to 11 by Mohawk artist Skawennati—a futuristic saga set in 3025 yet firmly rooted in the ancestral Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) confederation story and featuring historical figures such as Tekanawí:ta, Jacques Cartier, and a president addicted to Twitter… Our visual arts’ facilitators will be on site to welcome you all day: a guided tour of the installation and original collective workshops will encourage young and mature viewers alike to (re)learn history from an Indigenous perspective and imagine how all people can contribute to the world of tomorrow.
