Community: Wabanaki Nation, QC
Initiative: Waban-Aki Nation and Community Archives

Along with the Waban-Aki Nation, I would work towards creating a community archives centre. This centre would help the Abenaki become independent from other external institutions and help further develop a sense of autonomy by preserving their collective memories on their own terms. This archival collection will be accessible at the Abenaki Museum, the first First-Nation Museum in Quebec. This initiative will also help students from the Kiuna College (the only First Nations College in Quebec) located near the museum, to access material produced by their ancestors.
