Che’ Semiahmah-Sen, Che’ Shesh Whe Weleq-sen Si’am (I am Semiahmoo, I am Survivor of the Flood) was curated by the Semiahmoo First Nation and was originally developed by the Museum of Surrey. The exhibit explores the ways that the Nation has flourished since the Great Flood at the end of the last Ice Age. The exhibit features two large dioramas created by archaeologist Don Welsh, showing the sophisticated technology of reef net fishing and a summer fishing village. Also, on display will be several woven cedar pieces, video interviews and more.
