Elders & Knowledge Keepers
The Ottawa Aboriginal Coalition recognizes that Elders, Senators and Traditional Knowledge Holders carry an important role in our communities. They are the keepers of sacred stories, songs, language, culture and traditions. The OAC works with a number of Elders, Métis Senators and Traditional Knowledge Holders as they are a foundational piece in serving our community.
