Living Heritage and Quality of Life: Reframing Heritage Activity in Saskatchewan
Living heritage are those values, beliefs and ways of living we inherit from past generations that we still use to understand the present and make choices for the future. Living heritage shapes our sense of identity as individuals and our relationships with others, shaping our communities and quality of life.


Heritage DefinedHeritage is what we have received from the past. It shapes our present identity and provides insight for our future. Heritage includes a range of activities in the areas of stewardship, preservation, research, education and engagement. Within this context these activities must exhibit sensitivity to: 
The indigenous natural environment;
              The impact of the interaction between human activity and natural environments; and
              Differing perspectives regarding objects, ideas, places and traditions.

The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) asserts the inherent rights of Indigenous Peoples, including rights to their living heritage and the right to self-determination. Heritage Saskatchewan understands and affirms UNDRIP as a framework for reconciliation and a way to work in partnership with Indigenous Peoples.
