Welcome to the Gateway to Aboriginal Heritage.

The Canadian Museum of Civilization presents an extraordinary resource documenting the histories and cultures of the Aboriginal Peoples in Canada.

Explore a selection of material drawn from the Museum's artifact and archival collections. Historical and contemporary objects, images, and documents vividly express the cultural diversity as well as the creativity, resourcefulness, and endurance of this country's First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples.

Material and links will continue to be added in order to expand the web experience. Images of objects and documents considered private or sacred are not included.
