The Royal BC Museum has opened applications for 2018 Repatriation Grants. In 2016, funding was allocated to the Royal BC Museum to create a repatriation program that assists First Nations communities in repatriating ancestral remains, cultural objects and intangible cultural heritage.
The Royal BC Museum makes Repatriation Grants available to BC First Nations and associated organizations (such as a cultural society, repatriation committee etc.) for the purposes of assisting in consultation, documentation and repatriation of First Nations cultural items, ancestral remains and burial items as well as intangible cultural heritage from global museums.
The deadline for applications is 4:30 p.m. PST, May 31, 2018.
