In collaboration with the City of Gatineau, the FPIC organized several film screenings addressing issues of contemporary Indigeneity and held a talk at the Maison du Citoyen on the theme of cross-cultural understanding.
On June 19, 2016, the FPIC organized a large outdoor celebration for National Indigenous Peoples Day. Present at the event were Verna Polson, Grand Chief of the Anishinabeg Nation Tribal Council, Indigenous artists of great renown such as rapper and artist Samian, the drumming group Screaming Eagles, Inuit throat singers, traditional dancers, and politicians from the region. This event was sponsored by the City of Gatineau.
The First Peoples Innovation Centre also organized another event on August 20, 2016, called De l’Autochtonie à la Gatinoisie : échanges culturels aux saveurs contemporaines. The FPIC installed outdoor stations in the heart of downtown Gatineau that gave residents the opportunity to connect with Indigenous artists, creators and storytellers and hear Indigenous history.
