Anishinaabewin Maamninendimowin: Pane Gii-Bite (Indigenous Ingenuity: Timeless Inventions), presented by Indigenous Tourism Ontario and Science North is now open at the Muskoka Discovery Centre until October 25. Visitors to the centre can see the exhibition seven days a week from 10 am to 4 pm with the last entry at 3pm daily. For additional information about the Muskoka Discovery Centre, visit realmuskoka.com. Gravenhurst is one of nearly thirty communities in Northern Ontario to host the one-of-a-kind exhibition.

From now until fall 2024, the exhibition will be travelling across the north, presenting a clever and novel mix of science and culture intended to stir a sense of pride among First Nation, Inuit and Métis communities. The Northern tour of this exhibition will create a significant economic impact in the North through growth and diversification of the tourism sector, as well as job creation at Indigenous Tourism Ontario, Science North, and partner attractions.

The Indigenous Ingenuity: Timeless Inventions travelling exhibition was developed in consultation with the Montreal Science Centre and is proudly supported by the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation, the Federal Economic Development Agency for Northern Ontario, and the Government of Canada.  For more information about the Indigenous Ingenuity tour and upcoming stops on its tour, visit sciencenorth.ca/indigenous-ingenuity

The Igloo installation in the exhibition is an original creation by the National Film Board, directed by Dan Thornhill, designed to bring to life the richness of Canadian Inuit culture. For more information, visit NFB.ca/Unikkausivut.
