Royal BC Museum Exhibits

New permanent exhibition
Our Living Languages: First Peoples’ voices in BC
The Royal BC Museum worked in partnership with the First Peoples’ Cultural Council (FPCC) to develop a 2,900 square meter exhibition called “Our Living Languages.” The exhibit calls attention to the Royal BC Museum’s strategic focus on British Columbia’s stories, with a special emphasis on the place of First Nations in those stories.
Many visitors to the exhibition will be surprised to learn that British Columbia is home to 34 unique First Nations languages, making it the most linguistically diverse region in Canada. The exhibition provides visitors with the opportunity to learn more about the complexity of these languages and the people who are working tirelessly to document and revitalize them.
Although all First Nations languages in the province have experienced significant disruption from the history of colonialism, many have a strong and growing core of fluent speakers. Visitors to the exhibition will come to a new realization about the importance of language diversity and the renewed future for First Nations languages.
