We celebrate National Indigenous History Month to honour the history, heritage, and diversity of the Indigenous people.

As a country we have much work to do to acknowledge this tragic history on our path to truth and reconciliation.

The unfortunate realities of Canada’s history with Indigenous People returned to the forefront of our collective consciousness late last week with the discovery of a mass burial of 215 unnamed children on the grounds of a former residential school in British Columbia.

As we reflect on this tragedy, it is also an opportunity to learn the ways in which we can recognize the legacies of colonialism and take stand against anti-Indigenous racism.
