“For more than 40 years, Gallery Indigena has been a major centre for Canadian indigenous art. Erla Boyer left a teaching position in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology to open a gallery of Canadian indigenous art. Erla expresses a love and enthusiasm for native people and their creative work which is reflected in the gallery itself and in her deep involvement with the artists of Canada’s First Nations.”
