What’s in the Archives?
CSTC’s Archival collection includes more than 5,000 photographs, over 2,000 audio-visual materials encompassing interviews, meetings, and gatherings, and over 700 banker boxes of textual records. Also included are maps, drawings and plans, and genealogical records. A library, established in the 1980’s and 1990’s to assist with Claims and Treaty work, contains more than 2,500 reports, curriculum materials, language books, theses, research guides and historic resources.
The Archives are designed to support our collective goals
The Archives was established in 2018 to support the governance, reconciliation, and socio-cultural aims of the historic Pathways Forward Agreement.
Our collection subjects include specific and comprehensive claims, self-governance and traditional governance, traditional knowledge and socio-culture, history and anthropology, Aboriginal rights and title, political movements and organization, land use, natural resources management and development, health and wellness, language, and education.
Since 2019, we have been the repository for the archival records and publication stock of the Yinka Dene Language Institute, an organization established in 1988 through a partnership with the Carrier Sekani Tribal Council, the College of New Caledonia, and School District 55, 56, and 28. Please contact the archives to learn more about publications available and to order copies.
