The First Peoples’ Cultural Council is pleased to present this report on the proceedings at the Cultural Protocols and Arts Forum, which we organized. In partnership FPCC hosted the gathering with the En’owkin Centre in Penticton, British Columbia in March 2014. We hope that this document serves as a memory of the keynote performance and address, panelist presentations and deep discussion that took place during the two days of the forum. This report on the good work of the participants is meant to inspire the continued generation of ideas, resources and tools.

Indigenous people have endured, and for generations many have worked to maintain and strengthen our cultural protocols so that our creative imaginations and resulting work can be supported by our own values, laws and structures. The Cultural Protocols and the Arts Forum provided an opportunity for people informed by intense involvement in this work, to contribute their unique perspectives to a rich process, and return home with new connections and vitality for the future.
