Today on National Indigenous Peoples Day, we celebrate the heritage, cultures and outstanding achievements of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples in Canada. Now more than ever, it is incumbent on us all to reframe our worldview and honour Indigenous history and experiences in our province and across the country. We encourage everyone to take the time to learn about Indigenous histories and cultures, support Indigenous-owned businesses, and amplify Indigenous voices.

Here are a few educational resources you may want to explore: – Native Land Digital strives to create and foster conversations about the history of colonialism, Indigenous ways of knowing, and settler-Indigenous relations, through educational resources such as our map and Territory Acknowledgement Guide. – FirstVoices is a collaborative platform where Indigenous communities manage, curate and share their languages. – Indigenous Canada is a 12-lesson Massive Open Online Course from the Faculty of Native Studies that explores the different histories and contemporary perspectives of Indigenous peoples living in Canada.
