The Saskatchewan Indigenous Cultural Centre (SICC) will host its first ē-micimināyakik: Museums, Cultural Centres, Archives, Interpretive Centres & Libraries Gathering on May 2-3, 2019 at the Ramada by Wyndham Saskatoon in Saskatoon, SK.
An event of this scope has never been held in Canada. This Indigenous focused gathering will include presentations, keynote addresses, workshops, large and small group discussions and networking opportunities. Our goal is to share issues, ideas, progress and solutions for First Nations museums, cultural centres, archives, interpretive centres and libraries. The Indigenous gathering is primarily attended by Indigenous curators, archivists, librarians, researchers, interpretive centres and museum professionals. However, we fully expect Indigenous grassroots community members and leadership in attendance.
CALL FOR PRESENTERS
We invite contributions from the Indigenous community as well as from Indigenous researchers, professionals, scholars and community members that explore, profile and share Indigenous knowledge in these sectors.
