Indigenous Peoples Day 2021

 SCBC’s invitation to see things differently

June 21st marks Indigenous Peoples Day. In honour of this, the Sierra Club BC Education team has created a four-page resource that invites engagement with this day in a variety of ways.

This resource can be shared and engaged with at any pace. It is aimed to be accessible to a variety of ages and holds many gifts. We have compiled many resources both for learning and for action. From learning about some of our beautiful non-human relatives to petitions and actions to be involved with, this gift is abundant. We hope this gift can serve as an opening to doing the work of decolonizing both minds and lands and working towards being in genuine reciprocal and good relation.

We know that one day is not enough. Today is just a beginning. We invite this learning to continue after sunset today. We hope this resource aids in seeing through a new lens; one that is able to be carried forward.
