In the process of developing the exhibition, curator Aaron Glass conducted a number of conversations with First Nations artists and scholars during which they discussed the selected objects and the show’s historical themes. These field recordings were available to students during their research and subsequent video interviews were conducted for the website. Short audio excerpts of these conversations were available in the gallery on iPods provided by the BGC.
