Culture at the Centre satellite exhibition at the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre

We acknowledge that UBC is located on the ancestral, traditional and unceded territory of the Musqueam people.

A new satellite exhibit at the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre highlights Indigenous cultural centres in BC.

Culture at the Centre, on display at UBC’s Museum of Anthropology, features six cultural centres: Musqueam Cultural Education Resource Centre, the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre, the Heiltsuk Cultural Education Centre, the Haida Gwaii Museum and Haida Heritage Centre at Kay Llnagaay, and the Nisg̱a’a Museum.

The exhibit explores contemporary issues: land and title, repatriation of cultural artifacts, language revitalization, culture and community, the role of these centres in their respective communities. The eight exhibit cases also include video content from each of the respective centres with interview clips from community members.

Visit the Culture at the Centre satellite exhibition at the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre until August 15. The exhibition is open to the public every day from 6 a.m. to 1 a.m. on level two.

The Culture at the Centre exhibition is also at the Museum of Anthropology until September 30, 2018.
