Every picture tells a story! Spurred by the success of the first phase of the photo identification project with Inuit communities from Nunavut, Library and Archives Canada (LAC) is now expanding the project to all Aboriginal groups in Canada.This new chapter of Project Naming is a unique opportunity to contribute to the description and stewardship of Aboriginal cultural heritage and archival records.
First Nations, Métis and Inuit communities as well as all Canadians are invited to recall their memories, share their knowledge and engage in the identification of thousands of photographs from LAC’s collection. The majority of individuals depicted in the images were never identified and many archival descriptions relating to events or activities are absent or have dated information (e.g. place and band names).
