Cultural Mediation Kit


Do you know that we have a common goal? We live on the same planet, we have the responsibility to be mindful of this planet. Can we get along, can we work together, can we rally to work together and do it peacefully? Our people have been here for thousand years and we want to be here for millennia to come.

We may have disagreements, but we will respect each other and we will talk with each other and be honest and we will find a very good solution for everyone.

These testimonies are taken from the book Voices, Faces, Landscapes. The First Peoples and the 21st Century. In 2009, La Boîte Rouge VIF was invited by the Musée de la civilisation to participate in the development of its future permanent exhibition entitled “This is our Story: First Nations and Inuit in the 21st Century“, which opened in 2013. The mandate was to develop a collaborative work method with First Nations and Inuit to highlight the values and knowledge to be retained and passed on to future generations. La Boîte Rouge VIF made consultations with the eleven Indigenous Nations of Québec. Six months were devoted to defining approaches, the consultation program and the ethical framework, two years for the consultation tour (2010–2012), and another year for collaborative creation (2013).
