Indigenous Perspectives on Repatriation:
Moving Forward Together
Repatriation is an urgent and enduring priority for many First Nations in British Columbia and for Indigenous peoples across the globe. Over the past few decades, many communities have made great efforts to establish relationships with institutions and to repatriate ancestral remains and cultural objects to their communities.
On March 29–31, 2017, Indigenous organizations, cultural practitioners, scholars and museum and archives professionals will convene in Kelowna to review past and current efforts and begin the process of identifying long-term strategies and resources required for First Nations to successfully secure the return of ancestral remains, sacred objects and intangible cultural heritage.
Thank you for your interest in the Indigenous Perspectives on Repatriation: Moving Forward Together symposium in Kelowna. Your interest in the symposium is an encouraging reflection of the commitment of British Columbians to guiding and advancing repatriation efforts in BC.
Due to the size of our venue, we are not able to register everyone who has expressed interest in attending.
