Union of British Columbia Indian Chiefs Resource Centre is seeking feedback on digital project

The Union of BC Indian Chiefs (UBCIC) Resource Centre is seeking feedback on its Our Homes Are Bleeding digital collection. This collection “has grown out of the stories of cut-off lands in British Columbia […] and are a part of the history of the reserve system in Canada, aboriginal title and rights and First Nations resistance to colonial assertion of land title.”

Our Homes are Bleeding includes a range of primary materials:

  • Records of the McKenna McBride Royal Commission (1913 – 1916) include transcripts of testimonies given to the Commission, photographs and maps
  • Maps
  • Newspaper articles
  • Photographs
  • Audio and video clips
The UBCIC Resource Centre has also developed resource lists, narrative essays and student and teacher’s resources to support the collection.
Currently, they are seeking feedback on the collection and its resources via an online survey. The results of this survey will be used to refine and develop current and future digital collections.
