The Island in the Middle of Everywhere

March 29, 2024 - March 31, 2025

The Island in the Middle of Everywhere exhibition invites you on a remarkable journey to Xwe’etay (pronounced hwe-e-tay), also known as Lasqueti Island, which is part of the Northern Gulf Islands in British Columbia.

The Xwe’etay/Lasqueti Archaeological Project (XLAP) brings together Coast Salish peoples and settler residents to honour the age-old Indigenous presence on Lasqueti Island. The island is the traditional home of Northern Coast Salish peoples.

Through a series of stunning photographs and a video, The Island in the Middle of Everywhere showcases the archaeological work in progress and the beauty of the island itself.

The exhibition was co-curated by the XLAP and the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum and reflects the museum’s ongoing commitment to its Indigenous Foodways research initiative.
