In My Own Eyes: Photostories by Aboriginal Youth


Toronto Pearson International Airport, Toronto

Online gallery at

In Ontario, almost half of Aboriginal people – First Nation, Métis and Inuit – are less than 25 years old. They live on reserves and in towns and cities across the province. For this project, Aboriginal youth, both on-reserve and urban, were mentored by Aboriginal photographers. This project gives Aboriginal youth a chance to share their stories with people across the province, and to learn the role that photography can have in storytelling and social change.

In My Own Eyes is produced in partnership by the Ontario Ministry of Aboriginal Affairs, Planet IndigenUS, the Ontario First Nations Young Peoples Council and the Ontario Federation of Indian Friendship Centres' Youth Council.
