Indians of Canada Pavilion

The Indians of  Canada Pavilion on Ile Notre-Dame adjoins the pavilions of the Atlantic Provinces and of Canada. Expo-Express provides convenient access.

In all parts of Canada, Indians have discussed and helped to shape their exhibit. Indian painters, carvers and other artists have worked to translate the concept which evolved into a form of significant expression.

Through their exhibit, the Indians of Canada speak to fellow Canadians and to the other peoples against the background of Man and his World.

Primarily the Indian people want to present the problems with which they are faced by involvement in a modern technological society, and to affirm their will to preserve the traditional moral and spiritual values of their forefathers.

This is a positive expression of Indian thought. While the Canadian Indian approaches the Expo 67 Theme in terms of himself and of his own world, the subject is a common experience of Man.
