Ogden Point Kiosk
The past two days I have shown a First Nations mural and associated signage on Ogden Point – the mural is painted on the breakwater and the signs are on the opposite shore. Next to the signs is a heritage kiosk which includes 4 panels, one about First Nations and which I feature here, the others concern Ogden Point, local and maritime history. For the reasons expressed in the posts of the past two days, I am concentrating on the indigenous heritage aspect of these signs – mostly because I am interested in the shift towards greater emphasis on, and recognition of, the culture and history of First Peoples in this area.
I have added this kiosk to my map of markers about local First Nations which can be found here. The map is zoomed in pretty tight on this link, but if you zoom out a bit you will find other places. If you click on a marker it will link you to information and pictures in my blog about those places. Turn on the satellite image as it gives a better idea of the place as well. [Edit: I have added a map below – I think you can zoom and pan right within the blog, otherwise click on the “view larger map” text underneath it. If you zoom in on the breakwater area you can see the precise location of the signage, for those of you thinking about checking it out].
This gallery shows all four panels in general terms and then zooms in with crops of parts of the First Nations panels. I hope you are interested enough to have a look – click on any image to launch the gallery viewer.
