The IDN recognizes the Kanien'kehá:ka nations as traditional custodians of the lands on which our work is based. We also recognize the traditional ties to this land of the Anishinaabe. As Tio'tia:ke/Mooniyang/Montreal continues to be a gathering place for First Peoples from all directions, as it has for millenia, we work to support the success of Indigenous students and their communities for generations to come.
This network of curated boards contains online materials created by Indigenous individuals or organizations, or by organizations that work closely with and that centre Indigenous perspectives. While this board is aimed primarily at educators and students in the anglophone Cégep network local to Tio'tia:ke/Montreal, it is available to anyone! Please explore the the boards below to find resources that educators, students, and anyone else can use in and out of the classroom.
