Co-curated by Jill Baird and Pam Brown, the collective effort offers insight into the important work Indigenous-run cultural centres and museums in BC are doing to support their language, culture, and history.

Five centres will be showcased representing six communities. They include:

  • Musqueam Cultural Education and Resource Centre (Musqueam)
  • Squamish-Lil’wat Cultural Centre (Squamish, Lil’wat)
  • Heiltsuk Cultural Education Centre (Heiltsuk)
  • Nisga’a Museum (Nisga’a)
  • Haida Gwaii Museum (Haida)

Covering a wide geographic expanse from Vancouver to the Nass River Valley, this marks the first time the participating communities will come together to share their diverse cultures in one space.

Lastly, opening day for this exhibition is free with museum admission.
