EXHIBITION DATES:

March 6th, 2020 –  March 31th 2021

LOCATION:

Gur Sikh Temple

The Haq and History exhibit offers visitors the chance to reflect upon stories from and about South Asian Canadian immigrants, including details about work, home life and keeping cultural traditions alive in BC.

Through panel texts, visitors to Haq and History will learn about Punjabi immigrants working in sawmills in the 1920’s; hear about travel from Punjab to Canada in the 1950’s; learn some of the challenges of sourcing Indian food in Vancouver in the 1960’s; and learn about memories of life in the now-abandoned town of Paldi in the 1940’s.

Haq and History is the latest collaboration of the Royal BC Museum and the South Asian Studies Institute at the University of the Fraser Valley.
