OUR ELDERS – Elders play an important role in the North Thompson Cultural Centre. They are both the link to the past and guides into the future. They educate the young on the ways of the past to ensure our traditions and culture are not lost. Through their leadership they provide guidance and direction to the leaders. We recognize and give respect to our Elders for their wisdom and guidance. Our Elders are the glue that binds the work of the Centre together. OUR VOLUNTERS – Volunteers play an integral role in the operation of the Centre. Both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people volunteer their time at the Centre to keep the doors open to the public to purchase Aboriginal artwork in gift shop, learn historical and cultural knowledge in our museum, activities and events. The Centre is always looking for more volunteers. Your time is the most precious gift you can give. LOOK FOR US AT THE TOURIST INFORMATION CENTER THROUGH THE SUMMER MONTHS.
