Coast Salish Basket Weaving Workshop at MOA

Sunday February 4 | 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Buy tickets here

Join master weaver Jessica Silvey for a one-day cedar basket weaving workshop and learn about the cultural significance and traditional techniques of Coast Salish weaving. Using the cedar that was harvested and prepared by Jessica herself, participants will get to take home their own cedar basket creations. Jessica is a self-taught weaver of Coast Salish and Portugese descent of the Silvey family in Egmont, BC. The workshop is organized in conjunction with our newest exhibit, The Fabric of Our Land: Salish Weaving.
“Weave – to form by combining various elements or details into a connected whole. Many of my childhood hours were spent with my paternal grandmother in the forest. It is my favourite place to be, surrounded by cedar trees and silence. I have learned traditional techniques from research, as well as trial and error. I harvest and prepare my own materials. When I am ready to weave, the most time consuming work has been completed. Weaving is my passion and therapy for my soul.” – Jessica Silvey
Workshop cost per person (includes museum admission, light lunch, and all materials)
Adult | $140
Youth + Student + Senior | $125
Indigenous peoples + MOA Members + UBC Students / Faculty | $115

This workshop is designed to support educators to teach about residential schools in well-informed, respectful and appropriate ways.

FNESC Workshop

English First Peoples Grade 10-12 Teacher Resource Guide Workshop
January 29, 2018, Vancouver

Founded upon the First Peoples Principles of Learning, English First Peoples courses for Grades 10-12 offer students of all backgrounds the opportunity to explore First Peoples’ worldviews through literature. The courses were developed through the collaboration of First Nations educators with the BC Ministry of Education and it is notable that English First Peoples (EFP) 12 is fully equivalent to English 12 for BC post-secondary entrance requirements.
Originally published in 2008, the EFP Teacher Resource Guides have been revised to reflect the changing curriculum and incorporate recently-published First Peoples literature.  At this workshop, teachers will receive a copy of the new guide, discuss its use, participate in activities from the draft guide, and see our display of First Peoples literature resources.

UBC MOOC: Reconciliation Through Education


Reconciliation Through Indigenous Education course is about the need to disrupt and rethink personal and professional assumptions that we hold about Indigenous histories, cultures, and realities that very well may play out in classrooms and schools. Further, we need to reconcile the fundamental educational promise of equality of opportunity that has not yet been met for many of our Indigenous students.
Choosing reconciliation as a lens for rethinking policy and the practices of schooling acknowledges that there are contradictions in the current curriculum of schooling that impact the success of Indigenous leaners. Reconciliation in this course emphasizes changing structures and ideologies that create unequal educational outcomes for Indigenous learners in comparison to their non-Indigenous counterparts.
As educators, we need to be able to respond to educational reforms that prioritize improved educational outcomes for Indigenous children and youth. Further, all students should have opportunities to learn from Indigenous histories, traditions, and knowledges as part of a social justice education.
This course will enable educators to envision how Indigenous ways of knowing, content, perspectives, and pedagogies can be made part of classrooms, schools, and communities in ways that are thoughtful and respectful. This is an approach that more and more educators see as far more likely to ensure the success of Indigenous learners, which is important to their families and communities, but also to the future of Canada.

Course begins on October 17, 2017.

Register through edX.

Musqueam movie at VIFF

c̓əsnaʔəm: the city before the city

Sea to Sky | BC Spotlight
We live our lives on land that was never ceded or sold by those who were living here at "first contact" and yet we know precious little about the Lower Mainland before real estate. People often think of Vancouver as a new city, when in fact this region has been occupied for 9,000 years. This film aims to correct that with a meaningful reminder of the history and prehistory of this land and her first people.
Located in the area now known as Marpole in Vancouver, c̓əsnaʔəm was first occupied almost 5,000 years ago and became one of the largest of the Musqueam people’s ancient village sites. Generations of families lived at what was then the mouth of the Fraser River, harvesting the rich resources of the delta. Today, intersecting railway lines, roads, and bridges to Richmond and YVR obscure the heart of Musqueam’s traditional territory, yet c̓əsnaʔəm’s importance to the Musqueam community remains undiminished. VIFF alumnus Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers, in collaboration with the Musqueam First Nation and the UBC Museum of Anthropology’s curatorial team, shares an important and well-researched reflection on a time when BC was indeed super and natural.

Indian Horse

Panorama | True North | Special Presentations
In this moving adaptation of Richard Wagamese’s acclaimed novel, director Stephen Campanelli condemns Canada’s most deplorable injustice while celebrating our national game’s transcendent power. Torn from his Ojibwe family as a child in the 1950s, Saul Indian Horse is left to languish in an Ontario residential school, where he’s forbidden to speak his own language and faced with corporal punishment for the slightest transgression. Undaunted, Saul finds salvation on a sheet of ice, where he demonstrates a hockey sense that allows him to slip bodychecks with a dancer’s grace and constantly leaves him three moves ahead of opponents. However, even when his talent provides him with an escape from the school and places him on the precipice of stardom, he can’t evade the ramifications of past abuses.
A frequent member of Clint Eastwood’s camera team, Campanelli ensures that Indian Horse is lensed in inspired fashion, contrasting the claustrophobic confines of the school that restricts Saul’s self-expression with the expansive canvas of the ice where he’s allowed to demonstrate an artist’s flair. Abetted by Dennis Foon’s empathetic script, the director also elicits tremendous performances from the three actors—Sladen Peltier, Forrest Goodluck and Ajuawak Kapashesit—who play our guides through Saul’s two decades of trials and triumphs. Saul’s resolve and strength in his struggle ultimately serve as a testament to the Indigenous peoples’ indomitable spirit.

National Aboriginal Day

What is National Aboriginal Day?

June 21 is National Aboriginal Day. This is a day for all Canadians to recognize and celebrate the unique heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding contributions of First NationsInuit and Métis peoples. The Canadian Constitution recognizes these three groups as Aboriginal peoples, also known as Indigenous Peoples.
Although these groups share many similarities, they each have their own distinct heritage, language, cultural practices and spiritual beliefs.
In cooperation with Indigenous organizations, the Government of Canada chose June 21, the summer solstice, for National Aboriginal Day. For generations, many Indigenous Peoples and communities have celebrated their culture and heritage on or near this day due to the significance of the summer solstice as the longest day of the year.

What led to the creation of National Aboriginal Day?

National Aboriginal Day was announced in 1996 by then Governor General of Canada, Roméo LeBlanc, through the Proclamation Declaring June 21 of Each Year as National Aboriginal Day. National Aboriginal Day was the result of consultations and statements of support for such a day made by various Indigenous groups.
  • in 1995, the Sacred Assembly, a national conference of Indigenous and non-Indigenous people chaired by Elijah Harper, called for a national holiday to celebrate the contributions of Indigenous Peoples
  • also in 1995, the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples recommended the designation of a National First Peoples Day
  • in 1982, the National Indian Brotherhood (now the Assembly of First Nations) called for the creation of National Aboriginal Solidarity Day

How does the Government of Canada support National Aboriginal Day?

National Aboriginal Day is part of the Celebrate Canada program, which also includes Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day (June 24), Canadian Multiculturalism Day (June 27) and Canada Day (July 1).
While all Government of Canada departments support National Aboriginal Day, Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) and Canadian Heritage work together to promote it. INAC provides resources and ideas for events, while Canadian Heritage provides funding opportunities for community celebratory events.

Kanata Festival
