Indigenous Peoples Atlas of Canada launches new educational resources

October 31, 2018

The Indigenous Peoples Atlas of Canada has launched new educational resources that are unique in their content and scope. The resources include a four-volume print atlas, an online interactive atlas and accompanying app, Giant Floor Maps, and more. These resources were designed to meet the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action, which cited the development of culturally appropriate curricula for Indigenous students. “This project will ensure that young Canadians have the opportunity to learn more about the culture and heritage of Indigenous Peoples, including the dark history of residential schools,” said Pablo Rodriguez, the Minister of Canadian Heritage and Multiculturalism. “The Indigenous Peoples Atlas of Canada was a Canada 150 project that we were proud to support, because it involved the participation of Indigenous Peoples and responded to the Call to Action to better educate our children on these issues.” Nation Talk
