Our Living Languages: First Peoples’ Voices in BC

June 20, 2019 to October 5, 2019

Celebrating UNESCO’s Year of Indigenous Languages, this travelling exhibit from the Royal BC Museum features indigenous languages in British Columbia.

BC is one of the planet’s most linguistically diverse regions. From a global perspective, it’s known as a linguistic “hotspot” because of the diversity and vitality of the First Nations languages in BC.  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.
