The Jennings Young gallery in the J.S. McLean Centre for Indigenous & Canadian Art is a place for storytelling. Storytelling is a central aspect of many cultures, a way to introduce new ideas, teach ways of being, record history, interpret events and understand the world.

Nyle Miigizi Johnston’s Diiyah Muh’gaanag (Our First Family) is a collection of images of spiritual beings, plants and animals based on Anishinaabe teachings. Drawn in a pictographic style, they tell stories of botany, astrology and the interconnectedness of all living things.
