Check out an article on MOA in Westjet’s up! magazine. Writer Lori Henry gives a brief description of some of the Museum highlights.
Here’s an excerpt from the article:
First Nations culture is definitely the superstar at MOA, including the Haida, Musqueam, Saanich, Tsartlip, Kwakwaka’wakw, Gitxsan and Nisga’a nations.Coastal First Nations Dance Festival at the beginning of the year, bursting with First Nations dance by the Dancers of Damelahamid and colourful regalia from all over the western coast of Canada and countries like New Zealand.
Don’t expect a typical museum layout, though. I love walking into the Great Hall, with its 15 metre high windows, and meandering among the totem poles and giant carvings from the northwest coast nations. Now that’s my idea of a museum.
