Iranian Cultural Heritage Day at the Royal Ontario Museum

Farahnaz Samii

 

When Duke Conant, the governor of Canada, opened the Royal Ontario Museum to the public on March 19th of 1914, he couldn’t possibly imagine that around a hundred years later, the people of one the most ancient civilizations of the world would celebrate their cultural heritage day at the museum. This year, on May 26th, the Iranians living in Toronto celebrated this day in the museum for the second time in a row.

Iranians’ immigration to Canada formally dates back to about thirty years ago. Various events and incidents have occurred during these past three decades in Iran. From the Revolution and war to political conflicts, brain drain, and economic instability, all of these events have led to a wide range of Iranians with different social, political, and cultural origins in Canada; a society which, despite all differences, has a single name: Iranian immigrants.

One week before the ROM ceremony, more than 40 volunteers, consisting of men and women from a wide range of age groups, gathered in the museum in order to familiarize themselves with the environment, their responsibilities, and how to perform each program.

The whole room was buzzing; everybody was happy and energetic. They had a common goal: to hold the ceremony in the best possible way in order to show the cultural richness of the Iranian society to Canadians, and to possibly even familiarize the second generation of Iranian immigrants with their ancestors’ culture.
