This toolkit is a step-by-step guide for teachers to learn about a side of Canada's Indigenous history that most people don't know. It's a safe space for seeking answers to difficult questions, and correcting and contextualizing misconceptions about Canada's Indigenous peoples.


This toolkit was was created by Katrina Brown Akootchook under the supervision of Dr. Lindsay Morcom, in partial fulfillment of the requirements of the Masters of Education program at Queen's University, in Kingston, Ontario, December 15, 2017.

Katrina Brown Akootchook ní: yukyáts Onayota’a:ka: niwakuhutsyo:ta Ohkwa:lí nuki’talo:ta. My name is Katrina Brown Akootchook, I am a Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabe woman, member of the Oneida Nation of the Thames, of the bear clan. Despite living much of my life at a significant geographical distance from these communities, I have always kept ties to my traditional culture, and have had a strong blended Aboriginal and Irish Canadian identity.
