Aanischaaukamikw Cree Cultural Institute is a museum, archive,
library and a teaching centre.
ACCI flows from the knowledge that Cree culture must be captured, maintained, shared, celebrated, and practiced. Cree Elders have spoken of the need for a central place for the protection of the way, and have developed a vision for Aanischaaukamikw over several decades.

It was a pleasure to have this gifted actor show his appreciation for the spaces and the exhibits and he was unfailingly gracious in stopping for photographs with staff and visitors.
Adam grew up on the Dog Creek First Nation, Lake Winnipeg and started acting in high school. His list of roles in film and television, awards, and achievements is long and varied, both in Canada and the U.S.
