Canada History Week 2021: Indigenous History Learning Tool

This learning tool has been created to accompany the three short videos produced for Canada History Week 2021, featuring Inuk author Mitiarjuk Nappaaluk, Métis composer Pierre Falcon, and Squamish leader Chief Joe Capilano.

This learning tool was created in partnership between Historica Canada and the Canada History Fund and is designed to help students interact with this year’s Canada History Week theme of Indigenous history. The topics covered in this learning tool, the Canada History Week videos, and the accompanying digital magazine barely begin to scratch the surface, but we hope they can be used as a starting point for learning more about the diverse histories of Indigenous peoples in what is now known as Canada. In doing so, we aim to help Canadians better understand the need for Truth and Reconciliation in the present, and to encourage us all to work together for a better shared future.
