Saskatchewan Indigenous Cultural Centre – A Resource for The Community and The Classroom
Ensuring an institution exists where Indigenous languages and cultures are respected, honoured, and shared.
The Saskatchewan Indigenous Cultural Centre (SICC) is a provincially based non-profit organization whose Elder Council and staff are dedicated to promoting, preserving, and protecting Indigenous cultures and languages in Saskatchewan. SICC’s President, Wanda Wilson, explains, the organization records stories and visions from Elders and Knowledge Keepers from Saskatchewan’s eight linguistic groups (Plains Cree, Swampy Cree, Woodlands Cree, Dene, Saulteaux, Lakota, Nakoda, and Dakota). SICC’s programs reflect community needs and Saskatchewan needs the truth, supported by and through the formal education system.
Please note: The quality of the audio and video in each interview on NCCIE.CA may vary. NCCIE has been a capacity- and skills-building project for students and youth. They have been "learning-through-doing," learning how to arrange and conduct interviews while, at the same time, gaining experience with the technology.
