Indigenous Perspectives Education Guide | Historica Canada

This guide includes a timeline of key moments in Indigenous history, activities, and worksheets.  For a comprehensive  understanding of Canada’s history, it is important to examine it from Indigenous perspectives. Doing so requires students to  explore the depth, breadth, diversity, and regional variation of experiences of Indigenous peoples in the land that is now Canada. It  is also necessary to examine the legacy and consequences of colonialism and the repressive policies to which Indigenous peoples  have been subjected. This guide aims to engage students in thinking critically about our historical narratives, and help them  consider how both individual and collective worldviews shape — and are shaped by — history.
