Vernon museum to become more inclusive to Indigenous history
Oct 22, 2020
The Greater Vernon Museum and Archives will be getting restructured into a more inclusive and proportional representation of history in the region.
Starting with their Cultural Safety Program, the museum will be working with Sylix Elders to create new exhibits and showcase artifacts and stories from local Indigenous peoples.
“As cultural partners, we hope to foster a safe and collaborative environment that results in deeper sharing, learning and understanding with the Syilx People in the Okanagan Territory,” says GMVA executive director Steve Fleck.
“The program provides training in intercultural competency, conflict resolution, and anti-racism for partners in arts, culture, and heritage in the North Okanagan as they share positive information about Syilx People and participate in a process of reconciliation and future collaboration.”
