Indigenous History & Heritage Gathering

Led by First Nations, Inuit, and Métis thought leaders, a three-day gathering to share knowledge and promote Indigenous histories

We are honoured to host the Indigenous History and Heritage Gathering, which brings together diverse groups committed to preserving the histories of Indigenous Peoples across Turtle Island. We would like to extend an invitation to our network and anyone involved in researching Indigenous histories to join us for the gathering.

Indigenous storytellers and keepers of knowledge as well as cultural professionals, language experts, academics, media, government employees, and anyone involved in researching Indigenous histories and presenting and incorporating an inclusive heritage are invited to join us for four streams of knowledge-sharing:

  • Historic Claims – Realizing Indigenous truths in institutions, justice, and archiving
  • Residential and Day Schools – Researching, commemoration, and honouring data sovereignty
  • Language and Culture  – Research for revitalization and practices for inclusive storytelling in institutions
  • Place and Naming – Mapping and reclaiming places and names

Be inspired by visionaries and informed by changemakers with expertise in supporting Indigenous histories on topics like securing funding and applying best practices. Learn more by visiting the Indigenous History and Heritage Gathering Website.
