The Museum of Anthropology (“MOA”) presents first-ever collaboration between six First Nations communities with the illuminating new exhibition Culture at the Centre. Coordinated by MOA Curators Jill Baird and Pam Brown, the collective effort between the Musqueam, Squamish, Lil’wat, Heiltsuk, Nisga’a, and Haida nations offers insight into the significant and innovative work taking place in five Indigenous-run cultural centres & museums in BC to support their language, culture, and history.

Covering a wide geographic expanse, from what is now Vancouver to the Nass River Valley, this is the first time the participating communities will come together to curate an exhibition and showcase their diverse cultures in one space. The collaborators of Culture at the Centre hope to broaden visitors’ understanding of the role of cultural centres & museums in their respective communities.

MOA Culture at the Centre

Culture at the Centre will highlight the important work these cultural centres do in their communities. The centres are 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), and Haida Gwaii Museum and Haida Heritage Centre at Kay Llnagaay (Haida).

This exhibition is a unique opportunity to see the belongings from these communities presented in their own voices, and will be organized under three main themes: Land and Language, Continuity and Communities, and Repatriation and Reconciliation.

Featuring dynamic displays, unique territorial maps and images, Indigenous languages, cultural objects, and video works, the MOA hopes that this will be the first of many such exhibitions of its kind that celebrates and collaborates with these diverse communities and centres.
