Since the very beginning, the Aanischaaukamikw Cree Cultural Institute project has broken new ground as a true Cree and non-Native partnership, and its future will be built on the strengthening of these key alliances and the building of these relationships.
Those who choose to invest in this Fund demonstrate true national leadership, and a visionary sense that cultural continuity is a precious commodity that has value well beyond the traditional large-centre institutions. The donors we seek know that cultural understanding is the key toward building stronger, more sustainable relationships between all Canadians.
Your investment will help the Aanischaaukamikw Cree Cultural Institute build a world-class collection, develop strategic linkages with major institutions around the globe, and grow in a measured, sustainable way.
Your generosity and thoughtfulness will help Aanischaaukamikw take its place among the most innovative indigenous-centred cultural institutions in the world, and fuel its ability to share its priceless lessons with individuals, families, and nations around the world.
Your gift to the Aanischaaukamikw Acquisitions and Endowment Fund is a unique and powerful opportunity to contribute to this extraordinary physical expression of the James Bay Cree culture.
Even more, it is an opportunity to contribute to the growth of a rich cultural landscape here in Canada, and to help this Institute serve as an inspirational model so others like it may be created by indigenous peoples around the world.
