Aanii! She:kon! Yiheh! Welcome! Bienvenue!
The Great Lakes Research Alliance for the Study of Aboriginal Arts & Cultures (GRASAC) is a vibrant multi-disciplinary research network whose 500+ members have been jointly researching Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee, and Huron-Wendat cultures of the Great Lakes region of Turtle Island since 2005.
GRASAC researchers from Indigenous communities, universities, museums and archives have worked together to locate, study, and create deeper understandings of Great Lakes arts, languages, identities, territoriality and governance.
To learn more about the people and history of GRASAC visit our About Us section. We’ve also posted profile articles about some of our dynamic members, research stories, and online exhibits based on GRASAC team research. We welcome your comments and feedback through the Contact link above.
Miigwech, nia:wen, merci & thanks for visiting!
