Indigenous Education Resources:
NWAC has created the Honouring Indigenous Women Toolkit as an educational resource to address the need to restore honour and respect for Indigenous women, girls and gender diverse people.
The Indigenous Journey is a series of multimedia educational modules that provides an overview of history, culture and more.
What does it mean to be a good ally to Indigenous Peoples? You can now find out. A Montreal Urban Aboriginal Community Strategy Network launched a toolkit on how to be an Indigenous ally.
We Matter is an Indigenous-led and nationally registered non-profit organization that is committed to Indigenous youth empowerment, hope and life promotion. Their key project is the We Matter Campaign-– a national multi-media campaign in which Indigenous role models and allies from across Canada submit short video, written and artistic messages sharing their own experiences of overcoming hardships, and communicating with Indigenous youth that no matter how hopeless life can feel, there is always a way forward.
The Moose Hide Campaign is a grassroots movement of Indigenous and non-Indigenous men and boys who are standing up against violence towards women and children. Wearing the moose hide signifies your commitment to honour, respect, and protect the women and children in your life and to work together to end violence against women and children. If you go to the site you can order your own pins for free to wear and share in support of this campaign.
