Labrador Innu Nation Cultural Facility
EVOQ has been working for the past two years on the Labrador Innu Nation Cultural Facility project, which is part of the important pan-Canadian movement to repatriate artifacts belonging to the First Peoples.
With this project, the Labrador Innu Nation intends to repatriate artifacts found in the historical collections of the Canadian Museum of History and many other museums. The repatriation of cultural objects is a key element of reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Peoples, as identified in the Final Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, and in the United Nations Declaration On The Rights Of Indigenous Peoples.
EVOQ is proud to participate in this project, which will give the Labrador Innu Nation an opportunity to rediscover their roots, and is committed to creating a building that reflects their culture.
