LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

Creative BC is situated and operates on the unceded territory of Coast Salish peoples, including the territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.

Creative BC contributed funding to the development of On-Screen Protocols and Pathways: A Media Production Guide to Working with First Nations, Métis and Inuit Communities, Cultures, Concepts and Stories, commissioned by imagineNATIVE and the Indigenous Screen Office. Based on the concepts of respect, responsibility, reciprocity, and consent, the intent of the Protocols and Pathways document is to support Indigenous narrative sovereignty. We are committed to working with Indigenous creators to foster a vibrant screen sector in Canada that recognizes the inherent rights of Indigenous peoples to their stories and cultural practices.
