Culture and Heritage

 The Culture and Research Department promotes and preserves the rich culture, history, and traditions of First Nations people, in particular that of Rama First Nation. The Culture and Research department also seeks to educate both community members and non-community members alike on a variety of topics related to First Nations.

Community members and non-community members are welcome to visit our building. It features a fledgling museum, art gallery, as well as a small archives and programming area.  We are happy to respond to any and all requests for cultural assistance and guidance, examples of which include family tree research, appropriate ceremonial etiquette, and requests for First Nations representation at government functions or events.
