Syracuse photographer Michael Greenlar has documented four generations of Algonquins in the bush of Quebec, Canada for almost 20 years. The series is a testament to the cultural survival of the Algonquin people of Barrier Lake, La Verendrye Park, Quebec, Canada. Despite broken treaties and clear cut logging, these First Nation people continue to use the land as their traditions dictate.
The exhibition is in partnership with Ska*nonh-Great Law of Peace Center. Each gallery is exhibiting different photographs from Mike’s series. Be sure to visit both!
