Heritage Stands the Test of Time

Inseparably woven through Indigenous identity and life, Indigenous heritage is conveyed through ideas, objects, language, and artistic practice.

Reaching into the past, Indigenous heritage exists in living memory, passed from one generation to the next.

Through the passage of time, cultural heritage endures, remaining essential and meaningful, and standing the test of time.


We mailed 1,000 posters to libraries, local governments, politicians and, of course, our members. Please proudly display your poster to show heritage exists in your community.

You can find an electronic version of the poster on our website (here). If you would like a print copy, please contact Nathan by email (quantities are limited).
