Indigenous Heritage Circle, Vancouver Forum, 11 May 2017

Founded in early 2016, the Indigenous Heritage Circle (IHC) is an Indigenous-designed and -led cultural heritage organization dedicated to the advancement of Indigenous heritage for Métis, Inuit and First Nations caretakers, communities, nations and organizations. Through multiple channels for dialogue and learning, it aims to provide a trusted and inclusive space for sharing information, ideas and issues related to Indigenous cultural places, landscapes, narratives, languages, practices, legal traditions, protocols and collections.

IHC directors are consulting with Indigenous people across Canada to understand how the organization can become a lasting, sustainable legacy that will transform expectations about cultural heritage in Canada by making Métis, Inuit and First Nations views heard and addressed in all related issues and decisions.

Our next event is being held at the Musqueam Cultural Centre on Thursday, May 11 at 9:30 am. There is no cost but all participants must register. Please send email to: info@indigenousheritage.ca for an invitation.
