'Living on Stolen Land'
This is a solely out-of-love, not-for-profit based resource document to help Canadians better understand the oppressions faced by Indigenous Peoples through a curated list of books, petitions, organizations, and activists. This small resource guide was created in mind for those who are starting the journey of deconstructing the beliefs and values they have that uphold systems of injustice and oppression against Indigenous Peoples on Turtle Island. The information you see in this document is not exhaustive and should not be the only guide one should turn to - it only touches the surface of what needs to be discussed.
