Multimedia Centre

Since being established in 1972, the mission of the SICC has been to strengthen and support the overall education, retention and revitalization of the five First Nations languages in Saskatchewan. For the past 25 years, this non-profit corporation delivered services to support First Nations education, art and cultures, as well as to broaden the cultural awareness of First Nations people. The SICC continues to work to achieve this mandate of providing quality and professional services to First Nations communities. The new era for the SICC is an introduction of a Keeping House that will display paintings and artifacts from our First Nations people. The Keeping House Project is a step towards the future for showcasing our First Nations creative talents.

The Legislative Assembly of the FSIN mandated the SICC to establish the Saskatchewan First Nations Keeping House with unanimous resolutions in 1992 and 2003. The Keeping House will be a significant First Nations’ museum, art gallery, library and archives. The SICC conducted a feasibility study to examine the potential of locating the SICC First Nations Keeping House at Wanuskewin Heritage Park. The draft of the final report of the feasibility study is now complete and was presented to the SICC Board of Governors on February 2, 2010 who will make the final recommendations for this project.
