The First Peoples’ Cultural Council Launches New, Interactive First Peoples’ Map of B.C. – the only online platform showcasing Indigenous languages, arts and cultures.
The First Peoples’ Cultural Council (FPCC) has launched the First Peoples’ Map, the first interactive online map in Canada featuring information about Indigenous languages, arts and cultural heritage in B.C. The launch of the digital tool coincides with National Indigenous History Month.
We have FPCC staff and map users who are available for interviews. If you would like more information or to book an interview please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 250-883-4077.
“FPCC’s First Peoples’ Map is an incredibly valuable tool that everyone can easily use and learn from. First Nations in British Columbia celebrate diverse and living languages, arts, cultures and heritages that this map largely captures,” said Terry Teegee, Regional Chief, British Columbia Assembly of First Nations. “FPCC initiatives, such as the First Peoples’ Map, are vital to the integrity of British Columbia’s social and cultural fabric as this work deepens public knowledge and understanding of the many Nations and cultures that have existed in the province since time immemorial, as well as the complexities of human relationships to present day. I congratulate and support FPCC in their ongoing work.”
