Hi all,

I hope you are well.
Twice now, the Cranbrook History Museum has received comments on our use of the word 'traditional' when referring to 'traditions' of two separate Indigenous tribes.

This was the last comment: "It still is Ktunaxa territory, traditional is past tense and means of erasure."

Does anyone have thoughts and do you have references for them?
I will acquiesce to and am happy to receive consultation from any Indigenous leader(s) in the field.

Thank you!
