Resource List


The Nelson Museum, Archives & Gallery is committed to working for change. We have been working hard to create and maintain a space for challenging conversations about historical (mis)representation in Canada and beyond. We acknowledge that there is a great deal of work left to do in our forward momentum towards a deep and meaningful paradigm shift.

We would like to share our resource list with you, which includes links to websites websites, peer-reviewed journals, and books that inform the work that we are doing. Check back often as this list will continue to grow!

We thank Mr. Andrew C. Joseph Jr., Chairman of the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation & Sinixt Confederacy, for his Letter of Support. We are honoured to work with the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation & Sinixt Confederacy, with whom we are further expanding the role we can play in truth and reconciliation, and the decolonization of the Museum.
