What we have left from our ancestors, every little thing they left behind or gave to us, is a witness to our thousand-year-old culture. Our heritage teaches us the ways of the Ancestors, reveals to us their imagination, their creativity and their ingenuity in facing difficulties. These are their stories, our stories. The objects they made with their hands and the names they gave to the landscape features are our heritage. We must protect this heritage because it is the memory of our culture and history that we wish to pass on to future generations.

« Our symbols, colours and designs distinguish and identify us and represent who we are. »

Initiated in 2019, this project is a far-reaching process designed to reclaim Anicinabe heritage. To better understand who we are, we needed to begin an exercise in memory.  Research started for the digital repatriation of Anicinabe visual symbols. Returning these elements to the Anicinabe Nation will promote the revitalisation of the culture and its transmission to future generations.
