About Us

Living heritage is at the core of who we are as individuals, families, and communities. The past lives through us in our sense of identity, belonging, and place. It shapes our worldviews and our lifeways. It carries intangible cultural heritage through generations and across time. 

With a firm grasp on how our living heritage informs the choices we make, we can create sustainable livelihoods together.
