Where are you from?

Toronto, Ontario

What brings you to MIA? Is this your first visit?

I’ve always wanted to check out the museum. I have walked by it a lot. My daughter did a lot of work on Aboriginal culture in school this year, and I wanted her to see the exhibits.

Why is this your favourite piece in the collection?

The round shaped fur with the animal prints on it is my favourite because it reminds me of a petroglyph!
