It is important that Canadians make an effort to learn from Indigenous Peoples and support their communities and initiatives. A great way to get started is to get involved! Below is an interactive map with current events in each region of Canada. This is not only fun and engaging, but it is also a great starting point for those looking to form a relationship with an indigenous community.
Indigenous Peoples have occupied and used this land we call Canada for Millennia. These Nations have vastly different cultures, languages, histories, economic and political practices. In the age of reconciliation it is everyone’s responsibility to engage in healthy, positive, symbiotic relationships. Before you join an Indigenous community’s event, please read up on that community; try to learn about their protocols and be respectful. You are not expected to know everything, but we ask that you try to understand the community and do your own research beforehand.
