Indigenous Collections Symposium Next Steps

The Ontario Museum Association (OMA), in partnership with the Woodland Cultural Centre and Deyohahá:ge:  Indigenous Knowledge Centre at the Six Nations Polytechnic, held the Indigenous Collections Symposium on March 23 – 24,   2017. The theme of the Symposium was Promising Practices, Challenging Issues and Changing the System. The intention was to open an ongoing conversation between the OMA, its members and Indigenous (First Nations, Métis and Inuit) communities in Ontario regarding the care and interpretation of Indigenous collections, particularly those held in trust by non-Indigenous organizations, in light of the Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC). 

This paper presents key themes emerging from participants’ feedback recorded in discussion sessions and evaluation surveys and recommendations for next steps the OMA could take to build on the foundation laid by the Symposium. Click HERE to view and download the ICS Next Steps (English)
