We keep improving on a traveling display that includes brochures, pictures, heritage stories, maps and cultural food. New to the display is a map with five transparent layers which can be laid over a base map displaying only water bodies and topography. This map is designed to be a "hard copy" of the Interactive Map featured on our website - a visual tool that reflects the layers of history that exist on the landscape.
The display appears at a variety of cultural celebrations in an attempt to engage communities in discussion about the history of this fascinating area. Contact Us if you have suggestions of events we should visit.
