Learn whose land you’re on
Native-land.ca is a website/app with an interactive map of the various Indigenous tribes’ lands all over the world so that anyone can see whose unceeded land they are living on. You simply type in your city or address and it will show you what tribes lived in your area before they were colonized. Once you know the names of the tribe(s), take some time to learn about their culture. These tribes have thousands of years worth of wisdom and knowledge that we all can learn from but it is sadly not taught in schools. Learn about how they took care of the land, grew food, practiced herbal medicine, and their spiritual practices. Many have beautiful fables that are passed down from generation to generation that have beautiful life lessons. Educating yourself about these tribes and learning about your area’s real history is one of the first steps of reconciliation. Once you have an appreciation for what has been lost, you can see if there are any organizations where you can work to progress Indigenous issues in your area.
