The Gabriola Museum and Historical Society celebrates and supports Snuneymuxw First Nation and all Indigenous Peoples
The Summary of the Final Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Final Report (2015) states:
In the Commission’s view, there is an urgent need in Canada to develop historically literate citizens who understand why and how the past is relevant to their own lives and the future of the country. Museums have an ethical responsibility to foster national reconciliation, and not simply tell one party’s version of the past
—Honouring the Truth, Reconciling the Future: Summary of the Final Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, page 251
The Gabriola Museum fosters national reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples by working on its own relationship with Snuneymuxw First Nation People on whose ancestral land the Museum resides, in addition to educating museum visitors about Snuneymuxw First Nation culture, history, worldviews and the truth regarding Canada’s profound injustices towards Indigenous Peoples.
At the same time, the Gabriola Museum celebrates and supports Snuneymuxw First Nation and all Indigenous Peoples’ successes and resurgence.
We hope that you find this section of the Gabriola Museum website informative and useful to your own Truth and Reconciliation journey.
