CARFAC – Indigenous Protocols for the Visual Arts


“The materials on this website were designed to provide practical guidelines for respectful engagement with Indigenous Peoples. It is part of an ongoing initiative to strengthen respect for First Nations, Inuit, and Métis visual art and artists, and legal and moral rights in the territory now known as Canada.

Recognizing that longstanding discussions on Indigenous Protocols, and Intellectual and Cultural Property rights are complex, dynamic, and unique to each Indigenous Nation and community, the materials on this website will be updated as discussions and new precedents emerge.”
