Union of BC Indian Chiefs’ Digital Collections Project Complete

The Union of BC Indian Chiefs announces the completion of its digital collection of historical resources. The following are found in the collection:

Unity: Newsletter published from 1970 to 1971
Nesika: Newsletter published from 1972 to 1977
UBCIC News: Newsletter published form 1977 to 1980
UBCIC Posters: Posters created in the 1970s to present day
UBCIC Photographs: Photographs from the UBCIC Archives

Some of the archival photographs are from outside of BC. (I see, for examples, pictures from Alaska, Montana and from Mount Taylor, New Mexico.)

And, the posters are a fascinating reflections of the UBCIC’s advocacy for native rights. They are worth reading in full.
