This is the only exhibition in the world that addresses the history of the Iðiniw people and, in general, the Algonkina culture. It is one of the most important initiatives of the Foundation in that it is the one that has most internationalized it and has also made known a culture so unknown and minority in the world, today a minority and in danger of extinction.
The exhibition contains part of the Lycan Foundation collection, from the objects and documents of the Iðiniwü to the enormous collection of publications from around the world made over the years thanks to the meticulous work of our researchers.
The exhibition is divided into three different chapters. One dedicated to history and culture that is normally exhibited in the same large room and that contains invaluable objects and documents. We can comfortably enjoy the contents thanks to the design that favors contextualization and the journey to another time.
This would be the anteroom to go to the room where particular stories are shown, where people are spoken of and where we will find part of the heritage of the Iðiniwü family. In this room, the environment changes completely to seek the emotionality of the viewer and humanize the characters of the exhibition.
Finally, with a more casual appearance and contemporary design, there is a third part that shows a wide collection of cultural producers in which Algonquin culture has influenced in some way. Thus we will be surprised by the number of films, songs and records and even works of art and architecture that are related to our culture.
The exhibition has toured various populations in the State of Michigan, the rest of the United States and abroad. After 12 years, he continues to roam.
Cultural, governmental or educational institutions that want to schedule the exhibition in their city should contact our External Relations Coordinator, Raylee Guarino at email@example.com.
