We are honored to be part of such an important project that celebrates Indigenous ingenuity all while fostering knowledge and understanding of ocean literacy with the help of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) Canada and the Heiltsuk Nation. We are looking forward to continuing our work with the Heiltsuk Nation to share their stories of adaptability and resilience with the world.
- Christina Tessier,
President and CEO, Ingenium - Canada’s Museums of Science and Innovation
We are happy to work with Ingenium and DFO to educate the Canadian public about our history and heritage. Reconciliation can only work on the basis of understanding, and that is what Sacred Journey does. We hope to contribute to Canadian society through ancient wisdom and the life changing experiences that our youth are gaining through our traditional canoe culture.
- Marilyn Slett,
Chief Councillor of the Heiltsuk Nation
Our Government is committed to working with Indigenous partners in a spirit of respect and reconciliation. We are proud to support this one-of-a-kind project, which will enable Canadians to understand the history, rich culture and traditional practices of the Heiltsuk Indigenous People.
- The Honourable Dominic LeBlanc,
Minister of Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard
Sacred Journey has started touring and will travel amongst canoe nations in the Pacific Northwest and across Canada in the coming years.
