Playing Favourites is a running series featuring MIA visitors, staff and volunteers with their favorite objects in our collection.  Playing Favourites is open to every person at MIA, so please let us know if you’d like to participate the next time you visit.

MIA visitor Jose with "Preparing the Meal" (late 1970s) by Marc Alikaswa (1928 - 2007), Arviat, Stone, Private Collection on loan to MIA

Where are you from?

Guadalajara, Mexico

What brings you to MIA? Is this your first visit?

Yes, this is my first visit.  Curiosity.

Why is this your favourite piece in the collection?

It tells me more about Canada and its first inhabitants.  It seems like a very common scene and it tells me about their life and how families stayed together.
