About us...

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.

"This is Our Story: First Nations and Inuit in the 21st Century" at The Musee de la Civilization in Quebec City

On the 26th and 27th of November, the Board of ACCI met at the Hotel-Musee Premieres Nations in Wendake, near Quebec City.

One of the highlights of the meeting was participation in the opening of the new permanent exhibition at the Musee de la civilization, titled "This is Our Story: First Nations and Inuit in the 21st Century".

The exhibition takes an in-depth look at today’s aboriginal cultures, from their diversity, worldviews, beliefs, and ways of identifying with their pasts, to contemporary expressions of aboriginality around the world. The exhibition delves into what it means to be aboriginal in the 21st century.

Dianne Ottereyes Reid, Willie Iserhoff, Kenny Mianscum, and Stephen Inglis had participated in meetings in Quebec to discuss the exhibition over the last three years.

Staff at ACCI had also hosted a visit of several days by the exhibition team.

The board members, staff, and friends gathered for a photo in the lobby of the museum before the event.
