Preserving and celebrating culture can be key to efforts to promote cohesion and cooperation in diverse societies. This is no truer than in the case of indigenous communities, who have historically been isolated or persecuted, but now, rightfully, demand equality.
In the context of the International Year of Indigenous Langauges, the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions' (IFLA) first profile of a library active in this field focuses on Library and Archives Canada. Thank you to colleagues at Library and Archives Canada for this contribution.
