Welcome to the North Thompson Aboriginal Cultural Centre!
The North Thompson Aboriginal Cultural Centre, is a "Unique Cultural Centre", we focus on sharing traditional knowledge from all First Nations, Metis, Inuit, from all across Canada. All the while respecting and honouring the Simpcw First Nation in whose traditional territory we conduct our Cultural Centre.
The North Thompson Aboriginal Cultural Centre is the only off reserve Centre for Aboriginal peoples in the North Thompson Valley. They have been serving the community since 2009 and became a registered nonprofit society in March of 2013. The main focus of the Centre is to share and create awareness of all the Aboriginal people of the North Thompson Valley. They also believe that all people, both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal, must work together to make good things happen.
The Centre serves as a drop-in for local community members and visitors, hosts an area for a museum with the history of Aboriginal and Métis people, provides a gift shop featuring many local artists, teaches Aboriginal culture to all ages through storytelling and making traditional crafts and workshops, volunteers at other community events from Barriere to Blue River, and works closely with Aboriginal Engagement Success By 6.
