Indigenous History Resource List

Immerse yourself in the heritage, diversity and strength of Canada’s Indigenous Peoples.

We’ve pulled together a list of resources for you to continue to learn about Indigenous Peoples in Alberta and Canada, past and present. We hope that you will continue to listen to their stories, read their words, marvel at their art, respect their history and culture, and recognize the long-standing Indigenous presence and sovereignty in this land.

This is a living document that we will continue to add to, so keep checking back.
