A heritage worker is someone who understands and uses aspects of Living Heritage in their work, to address present day concerns/social issues and supports individual and community development in process.
Understanding Living Heritage as the values, beliefs, and ways of life that inform daily activities and decisions naturally leads to reconsidering what heritage work is and who does it. The following individual’s profiles are based on interviews conducted by Heritage Saskatchewan’s Researcher. Individuals were chosen to demonstrate the connection between Living Heritage and quality of life within the context of: health and wellbeing, citizenship and social cohesion, and education and employment. Each provides an example of how professional practice is informed by an understanding of Living Heritage, how the past has shaped the present and how people use the past when confronted with challenges and opportunities for growth.
