We need to listen to what Indigenous Peoples have to say and stand in solidarity with the national reparation process.

The higher education establishments in the Eastern Townships have made important commitments to the Truth and Reconciliation national process, but it is also the responsibility of every citizen to contribute positively to this vast social undertaking.

To learn about the history, languages and cultures of Indigenous Peoples, there are many tools and directories that offer quality content to raise awareness about the history and current realities of the First Nations, Inuit and Métis. These resources provide an understanding of the intergenerational suffering resulting from colonization and assimilation policies.

You will find below a multitude of videos, podcasts, films, documentaries, websites, exhibits, books and educational resources that will raise your awareness and sensitivity to the issues affecting First Nations, Inuit and Métis people.

The Montreal Indigenous Community Network offers the Indigenous Ally Toolkit. This toolkit can be a starting point for learning how to enter into dialogue with First Nations people.
