An interactive exhibit with stories of Inuit in Northern Canada is now on display in Mississauga.

The Ones We Met: Inuit Traditional Knowledge and the Franklin Expedition, which is on display at the Bradley Museum Anchorage Galleries from now until Apr. 16, “explores the historic Franklin Expedition through the lens of Inuit traditional knowledge.”

The exhibit features an audio-visual station and animated map and displays the retellings of Inuit traditional knowledge (Inuit Qaujimajatuqangit), and the modern archaeological research that helped to locate the wrecks of ships from the Franklin Expedition (Sir John Franklin’s 1845 attempt to locate the Northwest Passage).

Developed by the Canadian Museum of History, in collaboration with the Inuit Heritage Trust, this travelling exhibit is being presented in Inuktitut, Inuinnaqtun, English and French, which are the four official languages of Nunavut.
