We are thankful to Rio Tinto for providing funding for us to highlight the Indigenous History Forum: Truth-Telling! This two-day forum will feature the Squamish, Musqueam and Tsleil-Waututh nations and have presentations from the Haida, Algonquin, Haudenosaunee, Metis, and Inuit people. The Indigenous History Forum will be presented in-person on June 29 and June 30, 2021 at the Museum of Vancouver (Joyce Walley Learning Centre) and livestreamed via Zoom. This event is open to the public to learn about the rich Indigenous history of this land we call Canada.
