Be inspired by the portraits, stories and worldviews of children, women and men from 14 different First Nations communities 

Until April 16, 2023

This stunning photography exhibition features 30 large-format portraits and personal stories of children, women and men from 14 different First Nations communities dressed in traditional regalia, as well as casual clothing. A goal of this exhibition is to explore perceptions of the powwow tradition and examine contemporary aspects of Indigenous identity and pride. 

REGALIA: Indigenous Pride showcases the work of photographer Roland Lorente and his partner, Aline Saffore, who spent five years travelling 10,000 kilometres across Eastern Canada to attend over 20 powwows.
