I am Semiahmoo / I am Survivor of the Flood

Created by Semiahmoo First Nation specifically for the Museum of Surrey, this exhibit tells the stories of how the Nation has flourished since the Great Flood. The exhibit features two large dioramas showing reef net fishing and a summer village, video interviews with Semiahmoo First Nation members, cultural belongings, and more. Focusing not only on the past, the exhibit emphasizes the continued presence of Semiahmoo First Nation in Surrey and White Rock, highlighting the Nation’s youth and annual canoe journeys. The exhibit is on display until August 30, 2021.

“Semiahmoo First Nation has and will continue to flourish on our land. We have always been here. We will always be here.”

About the Indigenous Hall

This is a first of its kind–a space of gathering, storytelling and exhibition that is voiced completely by the communities it represents–Katzie First Nation, Kwantlen First Nation and Semiahmoo First Nation, Surrey’s three land-based Nations. The Indigenous Hall will evolve and change as relationships grow and strengthen. It is a dynamic and alive space intended to educate and story tell.
