LEN is an exhibition on popular Kamloops-based political leader, Leonard Marchand Sr. (November 16, 1933 – June 3, 2016, Syilx Nation); Canada’s first person of First Nations status elected to Canadian parliament and Canada’s first Indigenous federal cabinet minister.

The exhibition focuses on family photographs and objects generously donated by the Marchand family. Along with historical information and family anecdotes, the show highlights Marchand's forthright and humble character, as well as the conditions that gave rise to his achievements and approach to creating social change.
