Our Living Languages: First People’s Voices in BC

In 2019, to commemorate the UN’s International Year of Indigenous Languages, the Royal BC Museum in partnership with the First Peoples’ Cultural Council produced three custom-built travelling versions of its permanent exhibition Our Living Languages: First Peoples’ Voices in BC. 

The Our Living Languages travelling exhibition highlights what First Nations communities throughout the province are doing to help 34 different languages survive and flourish.

Through interactive stations, video and audio, Our Living Languages provides visitors with the opportunity to learn more about the history of disrupted languages in BC, the complexity of these languages, and the people–and entire communities–that are working tirelessly to document and revitalize them.
