Chinese Canadians and First Nations: 150 Years of Shared Experience


On the 150th anniversary of British Columbia, the Chinese Canadian Historical Society of BC believes that it is timely to commence a closer look at these inter-community histories to promote understanding of the shared experiences between Chinese Canadians and First Nations peoples. This would be of significance to all British Columbians, whether First Nations/Aborginal/Métis, immigrants, Canadian-born, Chinese, and non-Chinese alike. It is appropriate to provide a more inclusive perspective on these communities, rather than looking at each one in solitary isolation.

We invite you to view the video teasers, and explore this site and share in an important part of BC’s history.
