Our Living Languages
November 25, 2021 - May 31, 2022
On loan from the Royal BC Museum, this special traveling exhibition encourages Canadians to learn more about the challenges faced by Indigenous communities in British Columbia as they work to revitalize their languages. British Columbia is known as a linguistic “hotspot” because of the diversity and vitality of Indigenous languages in the province – 34 of the 60 Indigenous languages spoken in Canada can be heard in British Columbia. All 34 are represented in this exhibit.
This exhibit was developed by the RBCM in partnership with the First Peoples’ Cultural Council. This project has been made possible in part by the Government of Canada / Ce projet a été rendu possible en partie grace au gouvernement du Canada. Additional funding support from Vancity.
