In June, we commemorate National Indigenous History Month. During this month, take time to recognize the rich history, heritage, resilience and diversity of First Nations, Inuit and Métis Peoples across Canada.

This Government of Canada learning portal provides access to various resources to learn more about Indigenous history, languages, cultures and experiences. This learning material is Indigenous created or co-created.

Every June is  National Indigenous History Month. During this month, we celebrate and uplift First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities works and experiences, and raise awareness of these works and experiences to the general Canadian population. 

First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities have very rich cultures and ways of being, and it is only right to learn more about these lands we live on.

Every year, Toronto Public Library collaborates with the Indigenous Advisory Council to share a list of must-read titles for AdultsTeens and Kids. All of these books are by Indigenous authors. I’m sharing some that are on my to-read list.

Check out these titles featured in this year’s Read Indigenous lists!

Please note, when an author is Indigenous I share their Nation right next to their name in brackets.

We recognize the strength of Indigenous communities and acknowledge there is much work to be done.

We strive to listen, learn and engage as a first step to build the respectful relationships necessary to move toward healing and reconciliation.

Hockey Canada is honouring the history, heritage and diversity of Indigenous peoples from coast to coast to coast, and their contributions at every level of the game.
