Indigenous Ally Toolkit

What does it mean to be an ally to Indigenous peoples?

The Indigenous Ally Toolkit presents concise steps:

  1. Be critical of any motivations.
  2. Start learning.
  3. Act accordingly.

It also contains an overview of terminology and some dos and don’ts, such as why the term “Canada’s Indigenous Peoples” is problematic. Find more details in the Indigenous Ally Toolkit.
