Indigenous History Month – Learning Resources

By January 26, 2024June 19th, 2024No Comments

As we step into June, we embark on a month dedicated to recognizing and celebrating the rich cultures, histories, and contributions of Indigenous Peoples in Canada. National Indigenous History Month which began on June 1st offers a meaningful opportunity for all Canadians to learn about and honour the diverse heritage of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples.

During National Indigenous History month, we urge all Canadians to engage with Indigenous cultures, seek out educational experiences, and support the health and prosperity of Indigenous families, lands, and communities in BC. Let’s make this commitment not only for June but for the entire year.

Indigenous History Month – Learning Resources: 

Read Indigenous literature available through Camosun College Library. This sampling of resources has been created in celebration of the Indigenous authors and topics featured in their library collection. 

Read the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action and the National Inquiry on Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls Calls for Justice. 

Support Indigenous entrepreneurs and businesses through the South Island Indigenous Business Directory. 

Watch Indigenous-made films through the National Film Board of Canada’s rich online collection of Indigenous Cinema.
