A new article in the uOttawa Gazette features a list of educational resources for Indigenous History Month, curated by members of the Faculty of Education. These ten resources are places to begin the work of learning and unlearning.

"Indigenous History Month, and every day, calls upon all of us to understand the role we play in achieving the 94 calls to action and the importance of learning the true history of Canada’s treatment of First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples. We must take the time to learn about Canada’s history alongside historical and contemporary examples of First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples' excellence so that we can honour their experiences as we seek to address first 'truth' and then, individual, systemic and societal reconciliACTIONS.

If you are not sure where to start, the following list of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit resources was created by members of the Faculty of Education. It was initially created for current and future educators, but it is useful for the entire uOttawa community — whether you are an educator, learner, parent, administrator or policymaker."
