Survey: Building Relationships with Indigenous Communities


Despite years of educational and training opportunities, settler-led heritage institutions often struggle with Indigenous relationship building. This survey seeks to uncover related barriers experienced within these institutions. Your candid and honest perspective will remain anonymous.

This survey has been created in collaboration between the BCMA and the archives department at the Musqueam First Nation.
