BCMA Book Club: Indigenous Repatriation Handbook

Tuesday, October 10th - February 20th, 10:00 - 11:00 am PT 

In the winter session, Book Club participants will read the Indigenous Repatriation Handbook. 

The goals of the handbook are to support communities and museums that are in the beginning stages of planning for repatriation in BC and at national and international levels. Join Lorenda and Leia in reading the Indigenous Repatriation Handbook over 10 sessions. Our goal is to encourage thoughtful and inquisitive group discussions among our colleagues and find ways to implement learning.

 

This first edition of the handbook was written by the Indigenous Collections and Repatriation Department of the Royal BC Museum and the Haida Gwaii Museum at Kay Llnagaay, and it was reviewed by the First Peoples’ Cultural Council and the Royal BC Museum Indigenous Advisory and Advocacy Committee. 

 

We encourage readers who access the Handbook for free in the online format to donate to the Haida Gwaii Museum at Kay Llnagaay (donate here) in appreciation of their hard work and dedication to the creation of this resource for use by both Indigenous and non-Indigenous organizations. Print copies are available from the Royal BC Museum shop.

 

 

Registration is not required but recommended to receive reminder emails about the meetings and assigned readings.
