Indigenous Education and Safety

Indigenous Cultural Safety Training

University of Alberta’s Faculty of Native Studies offers a free 12-lesson Massive Open Online Course (MOOC), which explores Indigenous histories and contemporary issues in Canada. From an Indigenous perspective, this course explores key issues facing Indigenous peoples today from a historical and critical perspective highlighting national and local Indigenous-settler relations.

Cancer Care Centre lists cancer resources to support First Nations, Inuit, Métis, and urban Indigenous communities and organizations in Ontario.


Truth and Reconciliation

As an important step in rebuilding Canada’s relationship with Indigenous peoples, The Government of Canada continues to be committed to a renewed nation-to-nation relationship with Indigenous peoples based on recognition of rights, respect, co-operation and partnership. To learn more, please read the official Statement of Truth and Reconciliation.


Dish With One Spoon

A “dish with one spoon” was often mentioned by Indigenous peoples while making treaties with one another to avoid violent conflict. The “dish” represents the land that is to be shared peacefully and the “spoon” represents the individuals living on and using the resources of the land in a spirit of mutual co-operation.

Subsequent Indigenous Nations and Peoples, Europeans and all newcomers have been invited into this treaty in the spirit of peace, friendship and respect.


Two Row Wampum – Gä•sweñta’

The Haudenosaunee see the Two Row Wampum as a living treaty; a way that they have established for their people to live together in peace; that each nation will respect the ways of the other as they meet to discuss solutions to the issues that come before them.


Woodland Cultural Centre

Located at 184 Mohawk Street in Brantford, the Woodland Cultural Centre  serves to preserve and promote Indigenous history, art, language and culture. We welcome you to visit and learn the story of the Haudenosaunee people of the Eastern Woodlands through innovative exhibitions and programs.
