Voices of Amiskwaciy

Stories from Indigenous Edmonton

The Edmonton Public Library introduces Voices of Amiskwaciy—a digital public space to share Indigenous stories, a first for a public library in Canada.

Voices of Amiskwaciy is an initiative that supports the community to create, share, discover and celebrate local Indigenous content online. EPL will support the skill-building needed for communities and groups who would like to create and manage their own collections and learn how to do digital storytelling.

It is guided by the values of ongoing consultation and collaboration with Indigenous communities in the spirit of reconciliation. This website will be accessible to all Canadians and will provide the opportunity for dialogue in the reconciliation process.

Voices of Amiskwaciy is a space owned by the Indigenous community. Amiskwaciy is short form of amiskwaciy-wâskahikan, which translates to “Beaver Hills” in Cree and refers to the Edmonton region.
